Michael Plant and Caitlin Walker are part of the Happier Lives Institute. The Happier Lives Institute aims to answer the following question: how can we most effectively use our resources to help people become happier? To address this, they combine data from people’s self-reported happiness and life satisfaction with insights from multiple academic disciplines.
