OLRC's are controled for:
- year dummies
- gender
- age
- marital status
- number of childeren
- education level
- 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 self employed and unemployed. Comparison is only possible across associations with the same happiness measure.
