This book deals with satisfaction analysis, the way humans evaluate many aspects of their situation. It focuses on that which precedes decision taking, i.e., judgements and evaluations, likes and dislikes, and from which preference orderings originate. Although written by two economists, the book is intended for social scientists with the aim of promoting discussion between the two disciplines. It presents methodology by which satisfaction can be analysed along the lines similar to those used by econometricians to analyse ‘objective’ variables.
