The article presents a cohort analysis that studies the factors that lead to high life satisfaction (LS) and the effect of LS on mortality. The study was conducted on 2,675 participants of age between 25 to 74 years who were the part of the MONICA Augsburg Project of 1994 to 1995. Also, multivariate logistic regression analyses was used to determine the LS supporting factors. It was concluded that psychological, social and lifestyle factors lead to high LS and high LS lead to low mortality.
