Operationalization | 0: girls 1: boys |

Remarks | Participants were beeped at random moments eight times a day from 7:30 am to 10:30 pm for one week. At each beep they answered questions about: a: what activity they where doing on the moment b: whom they were with c: how they felt at that moment (various feelings, one of which happiness) |

Appendix 2: Statistics used

Symbol | Explanation |

F | F-STATISTIC Type: asymmetric standard test statistic. Range: nonnegative unlimited Meaning : the test statistic is also called the "Variance Ratio" and is the ratio of two independent estimators of the same variance with n1 and n2 degrees of freedom respectively. The critical values of its probability distribution are tabulated extensively in almost any textbook on Statistics |

t. | t-STATISTIC (Student's t-statistic) Type: symmetric standard test statistic. One parameter: n (= number of degrees of freedom (df) ; range df: [1; + infinite) Range for t: unlimited Meaning : the test statistic is the ratio of a difference between a statistic and its expected value under the null hypothesis and its (estimated) standard error with n degrees of freedom. The critical values of its probability distribution are tabulated extensively in almost any textbook on Statistics. |
