Visualization of the Assessment of Subjective Well-being of Adolescents

40

Abstract

The article describes the capabilities of an information system designed to store and process information obtained by interviewing children in order to obtain adequate data on their subjective well-being using Excel spreadsheets. The calculation blocks of the system allow you to calculate the parameters of subjective well-being. At the same time, all the answers are given to a single five-point system, on the basis of which it is possible to calculate the relative SAT and Z-scores in the future. The inclusion of autofilters allows you to select any regions, educational institutions, groups of children and even a specific teenager, comparing them with each other in terms of the subjective well-being of children. The value that allows you to see deviations from the average value or build ratings is a dimensionless Z-score. Visualization blocks allow you to obtain profiles of relative well-being, taking into account the significance of their parameters, as well as to construct distribution functions for the values of the SB parameters. An illustration of the capabilities of the developed visualization system is the calculation and analysis of data on the subjective well-being of adolescents in Primorsky Krai, the city of Nakhodka, a secondary school and a specific teenager, which allow us to identify areas of well-being and targets for helping adolescents.
