One assertion is that different people use different criteria, so two persons stating they are ‘very happy’ could say so for different reasons. Another claim is that people have different scales in mind, and that people who report they are ‘very happy’ may in fact be equally as happy as someone who characterizes his life as ‘fairly happy’. In economy this reasoning is known as the theorem of ‘incomparable utilities’. If true, this would mean that subjective appraisals cannot show whether one person (or social group) is better off than another, and hence that this kind of indicator is of little help in selecting those most in need of policy support.
