OLRC controlled for:
-age
-health
-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 and whether the correlations are negative or positive. E.g.  in Finland men are less happy than women and in Chile men are happier than women.
