scientific work on subjective appreciation of life-as-a-whole will be included in the
of empirical work will also be summarized in the finding collections, provided that the
measures of happiness used fit our validity demands. Acceptable measures are listed in the collection Measures of Happiness
In that case each of your research findings is described in a standard terminology on a separate 'page'. Finding pages contain links to the original publication in the Bibliography and to details about measurement of happiness and statistics of association. Finding pages are sorted on subject and gathered in 'reports'. They can also be searched on population and on methodological features.
all the findings eligible for inclusion have been entered at the moment. We cannot keep track with the growing stream of research reports. For the next year we focus on getting the collection complete up to the year 2000.
can secure inclusion of your findings if you enter them yourself. At the moment you can do that using a form can be downloaded from here: Download finding notation form. This is a Word document, from which we will add your entries in the database using copy and paste. More efficient direct entry on internet will be possible in the beginning of next year.
- Though possible, the entering of your findings by yourself is not advisable. The standardized description of research findings involves many rules and it takes quite some time to master these. Entry by you will also require much correction from our part. So we prefer that you have the job done by an expert for pay. We are ready to advise you in that, but will not be involved financially ourself.
