About a Japanese feeling of "happiness"

The result of the homemaker of the city life of 30 years-old cost came out of the most fortunate Japanese.
Simultaneously, the result of thinking that he is unhappy as a senior citizen also came out.

It is the questionnaire Japanese college professors conducted the questionnaire survey for 6000 people of the whole country, and the "feeling of happiness" which Japanese people consider emerged by having investigated and evaluated the concept of "happiness."

A woman feels happiness rather than a male and the younger age group feels happiness rather than the advanced age layer.
However, the result that it was not necessarily proportional came out of the height and happiness of income.

This is the very new research findings which evaluated the ambiguous concept of "happiness" from an economic and sociological viewpoint.
"The most fortunate person statue in Japan" was made to emerge based on investigation data, and the talk of "if some data can be efficiently employed also in the policy which pursues national happiness" has also come out.
Investigation is conducted for 6000 from February, last year to 20 to 65 years old of the whole country chosen at random.
There was a reply from about 4200 people (70.4%) by the way of visiting, and distributing and collecting questionnaires.
By the questionnaire, about the feeling of happiness, it made "to be very happy" into ten points, made "to be very unhappy" into zero point, and the "degree of happiness" whether you thought what point you become was asked.

As a result, five points are 25% most mostly.
then, seven points were 20%, eight points were in no less than ten points 5.5% 18%, and it turned out that there are many people who consider happiness as the whole.
On the other hand, four or less points were only 13%.

When this result was analyzed covering about 30 items, by sex distinction, there were many people to whom the average of the female "degree of happiness" considers the male that female persons are more fortunate according to 6.27 points to 6.51 points.
Although his 30's (6.6 averages) were the highest and then his twenties (6.4 points) continued according to age, it became misfortune with aging after the 40th generation, and it fell in 6.2 points in his 60's.
It is said that this result is a reverse phenomenon compared with the investigation which the overseas university conducted.
In the United States, Britain, and Germany, the result that the degree of happiness of 30 years-old cost is increasing with aging at the lowest has come out, and it can be said that the tendency of the sweet Japan society severe to a senior citizen was expressed to the young man.

At according to occupation, they are order, such as student (6.9) ▽ management (6.8) ▽ expertise job (6.7) ▽ clerical work (6.5) -.
Although the housewife was also high, the difference widened by the homemaker (6.7) and the part time housewife (6.1).
The numeric value was going up by school career so that it became high school career, but compared with a university liberal arts graduate (6.9), a university science graduate (6.8) is slightly low, and almost the same as a junior college graduate contractor.
Although there were few measurement sizes, the difference of 1.4 points came out in the elementary school & junior high school graduate (5.7) and the graduate school graduate (7.1).
On the other hand, the degree of happiness rose as income went up the yearly income of 15 million yen, if income (household whole) was revolved, and when it changed to 17 million yen or more, the ironical result of falling conversely also came out.
It went up, so that it became large-scale cities, such as a government ordinance city, especially the degree of happiness around the outskirts of Osaka and Tokyo was high in the inhabitable area.
This is expected for the way of urban areas to serve [ in addition to there being many high income persons ] as a backdrop as for convenience etc.

In Norway, it is said that there is also a report that the degree of happiness in urban areas and the country does not change.

Moreover, although people's way had the high degree of happiness in a nonsmoker, the smokers who do a nonsmoker and gambling, and those who do not do, when compared from the drinking custom, there was no great difference.
The result that those who are not worried were higher also came out in people with piety, those who are not and to whom others' standard of living worries a certain man's way, and those who are not worried.

The professor is saying, "Are each man and investigating such a subjective feeling of happiness and taking in in economics however. Doesn't a paper economic theory bring close by real society, as for with what "happiness" is considered?"

if it thinks paradoxically from this result, am I in the younger age group who lives in a city happiness?

The capital, Tokyo which are the best cities in Japan.

Are you happiness now?
