Articles of the moment

Office for National Statistics data for the Happiness Index study. Link to the actual data here. Includes the questions they asked. They didn’t ask any of Prof. Ed Diener’s questions. They seem to have made up their own.
Living with less – an article justifying the work on well being during the economic crisis
Things that make us happy – theatre apparently.
The Mail’s take on the well being survey. All the comments on the article are of outrage at the cost. They don’t seem to care about happiness. £2mill is a drop in the ocean. For that price they should have been asking 10,000 really, not 4200. And they should have been asking the right questions. i.e. Ed Diener’s in my opinion, because they’ve been asked of so many people, and we could compare ourselves that way to other countries.
