Older Americans, Religious Individuals, and Even Political Party Members Are Happier
How many adults do you know who you’d consider to be very happy? Would you include yourself in that count? Statistically speaking, there’s about a one in three chance that you do: The Harris Poll Happiness Index, which uses a series of questions to calculate Americans’ overall happiness, finds that roughly a third of Americans (34%) are very happy. The Happiness Index looks at what’s on the minds of Americans today, and reflects attitudes toward the state of affairs in our country. What’s more, it offers a glimpse of which segments of our country’s population are most and least happy. See the full release to learn who’s happy, who’s unhappy, and why.
