Happiness is....

I’d be happy to read this survey report, summarized in this article, but I haven’t found the time yet.

Here is one interesting finding:

[T]he most robust correlations of all those described in this report are health, income, church attendance, being married and, yes, being a Republican. Indeed, being a Republican is associated not only with happiness, it is also associated with every other trait in this cluster. Even so, the factor that makes the most difference in predicting happiness is neither being a Republican nor being wealthy - it’s being in good health.

There seems to be no data on the relationship between wisdom and happiness, though if education is a proxy (dubious, to be sure), education and happiness are positively correlated.
