On Friday, September 11, 2009, I hosted a happiness survey on my blog, using the tools on SurveyMonkey. Here are the statistics.
A total of 14 persons responded to the survey, but only 12 completed the questionnaire. Out of these 11, five were males and the remaining seven were females.
If you still remember, the questionnaire was divided into three sections. Section A asked negative questions. The more you disagree with the statements, the happier you are.
I am not particularly optimistic about the future.
I do not have particular happy memories of the past.
Section B asked positive questions. The more you agree with the statements, the happier you are.
I feel that life is very rewarding.
I have very warm feelings towards almost everyone.
Section C asked you to specify your gender and age groups.
I have devised a rating scale such that the higher the score, the happier one is. Maximum score is 6. And here are the results:
Average score: 4.45
Male average: 4.02
Female average: 4.75
P/S Many thanks to all the participants.
