Abstract: In recent years, interest in community activities has been growing. This study examines the causal relationship between community activity participation and subjective well-being, using data from a nationwide online questionnaire survey. The results show that participation in community activities increases the subjective well-being of individuals, and that it would also increase the well-being of non-participants through improvements of the local living environment and the propagation of the sense of well-being. These results support the significance of policy initiatives to community activities and indicate that such policies could be evaluated in terms of well-being.
