A Measure of U.S. Happiness
from the Seattle Times
WASHINGTON - The Gallup Organization and a health-industry partner now offer a detailed daily measure of U.S. happiness and stress that you can look it up on the Internet. They hope that it will be as influential an indicator of national progress someday as the gross domestic product.
The index, which is based on 1,000 in-depth interviews nightly, is the first time that happiness and its many components have been measured regularly and precisely in other than dollar terms.
To come up with the daily index, Gallup asks a battery of questions about respondents' previous days, including state of health, economic comfort, job satisfaction, social life, restedness, optimism, worry and other factors in contentment.
