Cross-Cultural Study of Happiness

Short Description: The goal of this project is to explore how culture-specific meanings of happiness give rise to differences both across cultures (Germany and Japanese) and within cultures.

Methodological Details: Several self-report items on happiness, e.g., “Taking all things together, how happy would you say you will be in the future, say about five years from now?”
