According to Maroufizadeh
et al. (2016), Cronbach’s alpha coefficient for assessing internal consistency
of the SWLS was 0.887. Cronbach’s alpha was calculated to be .80. According to Pavot
and Diener (1993), coefficient alpha has ranged from .79 to .89. Moreover, the
SWLS are valid and reliable measure of life satisfaction, suited for use with a
wide range of age groups and applications, which makes possible the savings of
interview time and resources compared to many measures of life satisfaction
(Diener et al., 1985). The internal reliability of the SWLS has been estimated
to range between .80 to .89 (Matheny et al., 2008).
