Using the 1993 wave of the National Longitudinal Survey (NLS) Young Women's Cohort, this paper develops and tests a two-equation model of women's well-being. The model conceptualizes and measures well-being at both a global level and a daily level. A priori, distinct antecedent individual, family, and work variables are postulated to affect global and daily well-being. Ordinal regression and OLS regression are used to estimate the global and daily equations, respectively. In addition to various individual and family variables, it is found that having supervisory capacity, receiving a recent promotion, and government employee status significantly increase women's global well-being, while union membership decreases it. It is also found that working an irregular shift, paid leave, and telecommuting in current job significantly decrease women's daily well-being.
