Happiness Measure Statistics Elaboration / Remarks A-CA-mi-tsb-v-3-a AoV = + s Among boys, retardates are observed to be significantly happier; both in observations in school and during recess.
No significant differences among girls.
A-CP-g-rdf-v-5-a AoV = + p < .04 Retardates were rated as happier than normals.
