Gross National Happiness  
An organization I'm a member of (http://www.timeday.org/) is working with a college research group to create and calibrate a survey to measure relative happiness of people in the US. The current version of the survey is pretty long since they're starting with questions from several pre-existing surveys. It takes about 45 minutes to complete, but you might find it interesting. If you've got the time, it would help to move the effort along. It's anonymous, of course.

Survey is here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Measuring_GNH

done. somewhat interesting. what I'd like to see is the eventual results. Didn't have much specific "how much pain / disability are you in? How much does that limit your daily activities?" stuff. (Was surprised that there was anything at all along those lines, actually.)

Re: survey
Thanks, Glinda! I was happy to see some questions along a few of the privilege axes. I wonder what will survive the winnowing process. Measuring happiness is surprisingly tricky.
