Example text

The most likely first interpretation of the data is that they show how the happiness of men and women changes as they grow older, but there are alternative explanations. For instance, the positive monotonic relationship of the HI with age in the case of men could have resulted from each successive cohort that reached adulthood being less happy than the one before it. More plausibly, the relationship of the male-female difference to age could have resulted from the gains women in American society have made in the past few decades, whereby younger cohorts of women are less disadvantaged relative to men than older ones.

Happiness is measured on a 3-point ordinal scale treated as though it were interval. 001 (two-tailed). older ages were entirely or largely a cohort difference, females should have gained on males from 1972 to 2002, again especially among young adults. 7 show the opposite trend; men gained on women, with the change apparently being greater among young adults than in the adult population as a whole. These interpretations depend on the assumption that there were no strong period effects that offset cohort effects—a reasonable assumption because period and cohort effects ordinarily (but not always) reinforce rather than offset one another in their contributions to trends in the total population.

A. ” b. Indicated ages are the middle ages in the 3-year series. these trends should be conceptualized as period effects or cohort effects is not clear, but acknowledging that they are at least partially cohort effects is important for interpreting the cross-sectional data on age and happiness. For instance, any intercohort trend toward greater happiness will reduce cross-sectional age differences created by positive age effects. 1 indicate. 1, but positive age effects have very likely been greater than those suggested by the data.
