This paper offers new insights into the relationship between trust in institutions and individuals’ subjective well-being (SWB) by acknowledging that institutional trust reflects not only the individuals’ rational evaluation about how institutions are functioning but also individuals’ beliefs. To better capture these beliefs and expectations, we use an individual-level measure of overall trust in national institutions.
