dc.description.abstract This investigation has examined the demographic and social psychological variables of voluntary association membership, income, self-perceived health, marital status, level of education, and their relationship on' age and happiness. The data were obtained from an interview study based on a probability sample-survey of the adult population of the United States, which was conducted by the National Opinion Research Center (NORC). Cross-tabulations were used as the mode of analysis.The study looked at the relationship between independent variable of age and the dependent variable of happiness. In addition, the variables of voluntary association membership, income, self-perceived health, marital status, level of education, and sex were used as controls to ascertain what affect, if any, they might have upon the relationship between age and happiness. Results from the study indicate that happiness varies by age and is also affected by the control variables. The findings also concur with previous research in showing the importance of self-perceived health and level of income as predictors of life satisfaction among the aged.
