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

OLRC's cannot be interpreted as absolute effect sizes. Relative values denote that a higher income goes with more happiness. Comparison is only possible across associations with the same happiness measure.
