Women in south China's Hong Kong are happier than their male peers, while the index of happiness of seniors is higher than that of the young there, according to a survey published on May 11.

The latest survey was jointly organized by Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust and the School of Public Health in Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine in the University of Hong Kong, and was implemented by the Public Opinion Program in the University of Hong Kong.

A total of 4,038 adults attended the telephone interview.

The scores of women's individual and family happiness stood at 5.24 and 7.59, while those of men were 5.04 and 7.46. Meanwhile, the indices of senior people's individual and family happiness reached 5.22 and 7.7, higher than the points of young people aged between 18 and 24.

The total score in the study was ten points.

Researchers confirmed that the index of personal happiness is more likely to be higher if an individual's family is filled with harmonious elements, though the level of personal income does contribute a lot to the rise in personal happiness.

The factors, which include face-to-face meetings, interpersonal communication, joint dinners and the sharing of personal information amongst family members, were proved to be conducive to the maintenance of personal happiness in daily life.

Therefore, the survey's organizers urged the public to pay more attention to young people and help them harvest more happiness in their personal lives with closer interactions.
