Healthy + Wealthy = Happy

In my final (at least for now) post about happiness, I am examining the link between healthiness, financial security and happiness. We asked 10,000 U.S. consumers if they agreed with these statements:
- I am typically happy
- I am financially secure
- I am healthy
I then examined which groups of consumers are the happiest.
- Financially secure people are the happiest (92% are happy)
- Healthiness has a larger impact on happiness than financial security; happy people are more than twice as likely as unhealthy people to be happy .
- People that are neutral on financial security and healthiness are only a little happier than unhealthy and financially insecure people.
The bottom line: I hope that you are healthy and financial secure!
