We examined this measure of the SWFL indifferent groups of students, separated by various characteristics. Through non-probabilistic longitudinalsampling, 114 university students (65.8{\%} female, mean age: 22.5) completed the SWFL questionnairethree times, over intervals of approximately one year. Confirmatory factor analysis was used to examinelongitudinal measurement invariance. Two types of analysis were conducted: first, a longitudinalinvariance by time, and second, a multigroup longitudinal invariance by sex, age, socio-economic statusand place of residence during the study period. Results showed that the 3-item version of the SWFLexhibited strong longitudinal invariance (equal factor loadings and equal indicator intercepts). Longitudinalmultigroup invariance analysis also showed that the 3-item version of the SWFL displays stronginvariance by socio-economic status and place of residence during the study period over time.
