Observed Relation with Happiness

Happiness Measure Statistics Elaboration / Remarks O-SLW-c-sq-n-11-d b = -1.2 p < .01 Very important O-SLW-c-sq-n-11-d b = -.88 p < .01 Important O-SLW-c-sq-n-11-d b = -.58 p < .01 Less/not important

B's are controled for:
- year
- socio-economic variables
- demographic variables


B's reflect the average statistics when importance of work is averaged for T1 and T2

B's mean that unemployed individuals who consider work:
-'not important' are the most happy
-'very important' are the least happy

B -1.2 means that unemployment corresponds with a lower happiness by -1.2 points on scale 0-10 for individuals who consider that work is very important for their well-being.
