Life satisfaction is examined utilizing a multidimensional approach. Hypotheses were proposed and tested for each of the dimensions of LSIA (Life Satisfaction Index A) within an activity theory perspective. The results provide qualified support for the theory. Some dimensions, however, show a better fit than others. Lack of a more general confirmation proved to be due to problems with activity theory and its attendant measures rather than with the multidimensional approach. The patterns of relationships found across the dimensions provide further support for using a multidimensional analysis when dealing with LSIA.
