dc.description.abstractThis paper examines the relationship between GDP, Gini Index, suicide rate, and the World Happiness Index. We find that the change in happiness in a country is correlated with a reduction in inequality and an increase in GDP. From these findings, we reject the Easterlin Paradox, find no relation between happiness and suicides, and we find a relation between election quality and happiness.en_US
