This happiness item is part of an index of 
'positive life orientation', which also involved 
questions on: feeling needed, having plans for the 
future, having zest in life, seldom feeling 
depressed and seldom feeling lonely (all coded 
yes/no)
High scores on that index at T1 (all items yes) go 
with a lower chance of being dead at T3 (OR 0.89). 
Split up shows that this effect is due to the 
items on feeling needed and seldom feeling 
depressed or lonely. Ss reponding yes to the 
questions on zest for life and satisfaction with 
life had a slightly greater chance of being dead 
at T3.

Longevity question assessed in two steps.
Step 1: Assessment of years lived after T1
- Actual number of years for those who had died (two 
third)
- Estimated years for survivors (using T2 actuarian 
data)
Step 2: Comparison with life-expectancy at T1 (by 
dividing by actuarian estimate of longevity of people 
of similar age, sex and race at that time)
Remarks
T1: 1955-59, T2: about 15 years later.

LQ above 1.0 means the person lived as long as 
expected, an LQ of less than 1.0 would mean that he 
lived less than expected.

zero (very poor health) to 18 (very good health). To 
avoid habitual respondents, the statements are phrased 
both positively and negatively.

Two measures were used:
1) The extent to which persons rated      their health 
better, the same or
   worse than that of other people;
2) Functional capacity, assesed by
   summing responses to two single
   closed questions, rated on a 2-point
   scale (0=yes, 1=no):
  -do you have any health condition,
   physical handicap, or disability
   that limits how well you get around?
  -does your health limit the kind or
   amount of work or housework you can
   do?

coefficients only denote relative differences in 
correlation between subjective health and 
happiness, e.g.a more positive correlation in 
Finland than in Argentina or Japan.
