Appendix 2: Statistics used

Symbol | Explanation |

OPRC | OPRC: Regression coefficient in ordered categorical probit regression. Only the sign of the computed coefficient is informative. Happiness is an ordered categorical variable. Higher categories correspond to being more happy. OPRC < 0 indicates that the probability of being beyond a chosen happiness category decreases and the probability of being at or below that category increases when 1) the corresponding metric correlate increases 2) the corresponding category of a categorical correlate is compared to the reference category. OLRC > 0 indicates that the probability of being beyond a chosen happiness category increases and the probablity of being at or below that category decreases when 1) the corresponding metric correlate increases 2) the corresponding category of a categorical correlate is compared to the reference category. |
