JUNIOR, James Ferreira Moura  and  SARRIERA, Jorge Castellá. The relations between poverty and well-being: a systematic review. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.8, n.2, pp. 100-125. ISSN 2236-6407.

The aim is to analyze the relations between poverty and well-being in scientific papers. The search descriptors were poverty, poor, low income, and well-being. Articles produced from 2010 until 2016 were selected. The inclusion criteria were: be an empirical survey of people in poverty; use the well-being concept; be a complete article; and have adults as sample. We identified 592 articles, being examined 24. The quantitative design is the most used with the monetary perspective of measurement and conceptualization of poverty. The concept of subjective well-being of Ed Diener is the most present. It identifies that poverty has a negative impact on the subjective well-being, but there are specific paradoxes that link contrasting trends. It is important to point out the necessity of developing investigations analyzing the impact of multidimensional poverty on well-being.

Keywords : Poverty; Well-Being; Systematic Review.
