Research finds the happiest US States match a million Americans’ own happiness states

Texas ranks 16th on the happiness scale!

The new research published in the elite journal Science on 17th December 2009 is by Professor Andrew Oswald of the UK’s University of Warwick and Stephen Wu of Hamilton College in the US.   It provides the first external validation of people’s self-reported levels of happiness.  “We would like to think this is a breakthrough.  It provides an justification for the use of subjective well-being surveys in the design of government policies, and will be of value to future economic and clinical researchers across a variety of fields in science and social science” said Professor Oswald.
