My Search for Happiness features a great article on Happiness in its Health section. According to a recent Pew Research Center survey:
Married people are happier than singles.
College grads are happier than those without a college degree.
People who were religious are happier than those who aren't.
Sunbelt residents are happier than other U.S. residents.
Republicans are happier than Democrats.

I just happen to be married, college grad, religious, conservative, and living in Georgia. According to the survey I must be one of the happiest men in the US. My life is far from perfect, but I am grateful to my convert-LDS parents and the teachings of the LDS church which has helped me live "after the manner of happiness" (2 Ne. 5: 27).
