The ESWLS is a 50-item self-report scale that measures satisfaction with life in nine domains. It can be completed by most people in less than 20 minutes and can be used by researchers and clinicians. The readability of the ESWLS was estimated to be between the seventh and tenth grade levels. Persons filling out the ESWLS respond only to subscales which are relevant to their lives or to the area under study. The ESWLS is easy to administer and score. Items are rated on a seven-point Likert scale from "strongly disagree" to "strongly agree." Scores for each subscale are calculated as the sum of the ratings for each of the items comprising the subscale.
