OLRC's controlled for:
-age
-gender
-number of children
-marital status
-size of town
-education
-labor market status
-income.

OLRC (Ordered Logit Regression Coefficient) cannot be interpreted as an absolute effect-size. The 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.
