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

OLRC's cannot be interpreted as absolute effect sizes. Relative values denote that individuals of age 15-24 were the most happy and individuals of age 35-44 are the least happy.Comparison is only possible across associations with the same happiness measure.
