a PSC In The News reference, 2011

"How to Thrive: Short Commutes, More Happy Hours" - National Public Radio. 10/19/2011.

This story looks at a five-year study on the world's happiest places — in Denmark, Singapore, Mexico and California — and what characteristics these areas share that improve the lives of residents. Ron Inglehart's World Values Survey work indicates that beyond having basic necessities covered, the biggest variables for happiness are marriage partner, work, and health. The author suggests that moving to a 'happier place' stacks the deck in favor of more enjoyment in all areas of life.
