What makes you happy?

Australian Unity and Deakin University have teamed up to produce ‘What makes us happy?’ a report looking at key findings from seven years of research into the lives and happiness of the Australian population.

“The current measures of how well Australia is doing tend to be economic, objective indicators such as Gross Domestic Product (GDP), house prices and so on. And while these aspects are important, they don’t provide a complete view of how people are feeling about their lives.” This report instead focuses on areas such as love and relationships, health, life events, age and gender.

You can access this report from the Australian Centre on Quality of Life website.
