The PGWBI is a measure of the level of subjective psychological well-being. In detail, it assesses self-representations of intrapersonal affective or emotional states reflecting a sense of subjective well-being or distress and thus captures what we could call a subjective perception of well-being. Consisting of 22 standardized items (6 items for the short form), the tool produces a single measure of psychological well-being. The full measure also provides subscales to assess the following domains: anxiety, depression, positive well-being, self-control, general health, and vitality. The summary score, which reaches a maximum of 110 points, representing the best achievable"well being".
