Family and Society: August 2007 Archives

Things we don't need surveys to know

"So you're between the ages of 13 and 24. What makes you happy?"

Spending time with family was the top answer to that open-ended question, according to an extensive survey -- more than 100 questions asked of 1,280 people ages 13-24 -- conducted by the Associated Press and MTV....

Next was spending time with friends, followed by time with a significant other....

Just under half of young people think they'd be happier with more money, while the same percentage, 49 percent, say they'd be just as happy....

Being sexually active leads to less happiness among 13-17-year-olds, according to the survey. If you're 18 to 24, sex might lead to more happiness in the moment, but not in general.
