(ProQuest: ... denotes formulae omitted.)1. INTRODUCTIONIn Malaysia, higher education investments (% of GDP) were 5.7% and 2.17% respectively in 2009.

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has long been an indicator of economic growth. There is an on-going debate on whether high growth increases well-being. The terms ‘happiness’ and ‘life satisfaction’ are often used interchangeably to explain the subjective well-being levels of individuals. This study examines if both happiness and life satisfaction of Malaysian citizens are explained by the same factors based on a sample size of 1289 adopted from the 6th waves of World Values Survey (2010-2014). Outc...
