Observed Relation with Happiness

Happiness Measure Statistics Elaboration / Remarks O-HL-c-sq-v-3-aa G = -.10 ns A-BB-cm-mq-v-2-a DMr = - p < .05 Data T1.
Happiness level in average ridits. (RT)
- 21-29   RT= .48
- 30-39   RT= .47
- 40-49   RT= .45
- 50-59   RT= .44

The effect of age disappears largely when income and education are controlled.

Ridit analysis compares distribution in category with distribution in total sample. RT above .50 means relative high level, RT below .50 relative low level.
