Studying happiness with 100 volunteers
Mon, 09 Jan 2012 09:51:00 GMT
Dr Laura Hyman will be examining happiness in Hampshire, the Isle of Wight and Dorset over the coming year in the Happiness Project.
One hundred volunteers will be surveyed at intervals throughout 2012, and - with BBC Radio Solent - Dr Hyman's team is inviting applicants to join the 'Happiness Hundred' panel.
Dr Hyman, who specialises in the sociology of happiness, told BBC News that "We've already got a lot of data nationally about happiness and wellbeing, but having it at a local level is really useful as it tells us how environmental and local factors impact upon people's sense of their own happiness."
If you are interested in being part of the Happiness Hundred, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact telephone number.
