Předběžná náplň práce

The bachelor thesis will bring a new perspective to people’s life satisfaction.
I will examine this question through newer and actual data and find out a correlation of variables that have not been already studied but can influence individual happiness, for example, quantity of sunny days in particular country, overeducation of people, quantity of holidays or number of women in parliament.

In empirical analysis, I will use data from OECD from years 2013- 2016 which describe the level of happiness in all OECD countries. Data about level of happiness in these countries will be collected and compared with data for explanatory variables from OECD and additional sources.

Research question and motivation
Life satisfaction is the way people evaluate their lives and how they feel about their decisions about the future. Life satisfaction is characterized by measuring well-being, relations with other people, achievement of goals and attitude toward life. Life satisfaction is usually measured in relation to amount of money, education, and type of dwelling. There is a well-established positive correlation between life satisfaction and income in the population. The aim of the bachelor thesis is to find out which other variables can influence people’s happiness. I am interested in the effect of general macroeconomic determinants such as GDP, inflation and unemployment, but also in the effect of number of children, education, age, life expectancy, security and criminality in the country, living space and other variables. The definition of well-being has been changing over the past few years and life goals of people have been modified by new technologies, new-established morals, new models and idols. Therefore, it is very important to study what people perceive as a happy life in today’s world.
