Climate and Happiness: A Case Study of Indonesia

  • There are many applied papers that report empirical associations between happiness and other variables in the economics literature. One of the interesting subject in happiness research is its relationship with spatial variables such as climate. However, due to the availability of data, only a few studies from developing countries exist. Using ordered probit regression, this present research examines the influence of climate variable i.e., precipitation on individual subjective well-being in Indonesia. The data used in this research are the fourth wave of the Indonesia Family Life Survey (IFLS) which is collected in 2007 and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) precipitation raster dataset from The Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of University of East Anglia (UEA). The results show that precipitation has a negative effect on happiness or subjective well-being in Indonesia significantly.
