OLRC's are controled for:
- gender
- age
- marital status
- number of childeren
- education level
- type of employment
- income scales
- health status
- importance of life domains

OLRC's cannot be interpreted as absolute effect sizes. Relative values denote that individuals were the most happy in 1996 and the least happy in 2001. Comparison is only possible across associations with the same happiness measure.
