Happiness Measure Statistics Elaboration / Remarks O-SLu-u-sq-v-5-e OPRC = +.10 p < .01 OPRC controlled for:
- ultra poor
- gender
- age + squared
- married dummy
- employment status
- education
- household size
- rural dummy
- asset index
- hungry season
- regional dummies
O-SLu-u-sq-v-5-e OPRC = +.11 p < .01 OPRC additionally controlled for:
- attacked in previous 12 months
- burgled in previous 12 months
- livestock stolen in previous 12 months
- suffered petty theft in previous 12 months
O-SLu-u-sq-v-5-e OPRC = +.12 p < .01 OPRC additionally controlled for:
- regional crime rate (attack)
- regional crime rate (burglary)
- regional crime rate (livestock theft)

Additonal control for squared regional crime rate (attack+burglary+livestock+petty theft) did not effect OPRC significantly.
