Observed Relation with Happiness

Happiness Measure Statistics Elaboration / Remarks O-SLW-c-sq-n-11-d OPRC = + p < .05 WOMEN (+.47) O-SLW-c-sq-n-11-d OPRC = + p < .01 MEN (+.41)

OPRC's controled for:
- income of partner
- product of own income and of partner
- age
- self rated health
O-SLW-c-sq-n-11-d OPRC = + p < .05 Additional control for working hours shows a larger effect of income among women (+.53) and among men (+.52) compared to the coefficients when not controlled for working hours.

OPRC's cannot be interpreted as an absolute effect size. Coefficients denote relative differences in association, eg. stronger among women than among men.
