This chapter examines income satisfaction based on empirical results derived from German and British data. It is shown that the results derived from the financial-satisfaction question and those from the income-evaluation question developed by Van Praag and Kapteyn are nearly identical. These results are used to define family equivalence scales. The preference-drift phenomenon is also discussed.

Keywords:   income satisfaction, family equivalence scales, financial satisfaction question, income evaluation question, preference-drift phenomenon
