Observed Relation with Happiness

Happiness Measure Statistics Elaboration / Remarks O-SLW-c-sq-n-10-a OLRC = -.05 ns 1 child (compared to 0 child) O-SLW-c-sq-n-10-a OLRC = -.21 p < .01 2 children (compared to 0 child) O-SLW-c-sq-n-10-a OLRC = -.22 p < .01 3 or more than 3 children (compared to 0 child) O-HL-u-sq-v-4-a OLRC = -.03 p < .01 1 child (compared to 0 child) O-HL-u-sq-v-4-a OLRC = -.08 p < .01 2 children (compared to 0 child) O-HL-u-sq-v-4-a OLRC = -.17 p < .01 3 and more than 3 children (compared to 0 child)

OLRC's are controled for:
- year dummies
- gender
- age
- marital status
- 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. Coefficients denote relative differences, e.g. greater difference in happiness between 0 and 3 children. Comparison is only possible across associations with the same happiness measure.
