Perceived Quality of Life Data in the Developing countries. Happiness Data analysis. Interdependence Utility in comparision utility models.

At the moment, I have been working on the Perceived Quality of Life data from the South Africa Integrated Household Survey ('93 & '97), Russia Living Standard Measurement survey ('96-'00), and the British Household Panel Survey ('91-'01). For the first three papers of my PhD thesis, I focus mainly on the externalities linked to others' unemployment and crime on the individual's reported well-being. The fourth paper examines the degree of utility interdependence among married spouses in the UK.
