Here, we report on data from 9,667 Western women (US residents n = 8,925, non-US residents n = 742) who completed the online YouBeauty Body Image Survey. Respondents completed measures of weight-based body dissatisfaction, body appreciation, and subjective happiness, and provided demographic data including their education, age, and body mass index (BMI). Preliminary analyses indicated that 89.0 % of women evidenced weight-based body dissatisfaction, with the majority (84.1 %) wanting to be thinner. Path analysis showed that body appreciation positively predicted subjective happiness. BMI was negatively associated with body appreciation, but showed a direct positive association associated with subjective happiness. Controlling for BMI, body dissatisfaction had no significant association with subjective happiness. In addition, older and non-US respondents had higher body appreciation. Implications of the present results for intervention studies aimed at promoting healthier body image are discussed in conclusion.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Stieger, Stefan</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Swami, Viren</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Voracek, Martin</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Voracek, Martin</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Associations Between Women’s Body Image and Happiness : Results of the YouBeauty.com Body Image Survey (YBIS)</dcterms:title> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/29395"/> <dc:contributor>Tran, Ulrich S.</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
