    Abstract

    This paper uses spatial microsimulation methods to estimate small area (SA2) subjective wellbeing in Australia. The procedure uses the Autralian Quality of Life survey and the 2011 Census data to derive small area estimates of subjective wellbeing. Validation of the results shows that they compare well to another source of subjective wellbeing for areas in the Murray Darling Basin, and aggregate estimates compare well to HILDA estimates of subjective wellbeing at a State level. These estimates are now available from the Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN) at the University of Melbourne.
