Happiness Measure Statistics Elaboration / Remarks O-SLu-u-sq-v-4-g Beta = WITHIN MONOZYGOTIC TWIN-PAIR DIFFERENCE IN HAPPINESS O-SLu-u-sq-v-4-g Beta = -/+ ns Beta’s controlled for:
- at least one child
- number of additional children
- currently in partnership

- females aged 25-45 years: Beta = -.07 (ns)
- males aged 50-70 years: Beta = +.02 (ns)

Regression analysis additoonally controlled for the following variables yield similar results:
- number of stepchildren
O-SLu-u-sq-v-4-g = BETWEEN ALL SUBJECTS DIFFERENCE IN HAPPINESS O-SLu-u-sq-v-4-g = Regression analysis across all subjects yield similiar results
