Satisfacción con la vida, fe religiosa y asistencia al templo en Uruguay
AbstractIn this study, using data from the Religion, Health and Youth Emancipation survey, 2008 (DECON-FCS, Uruguay, ISSP), we estimate the probability of being happy with special emphasis on its relationship with religion and religiosity. We find that those who profess the Protestant faith are less happy than the rest. Those who attend religious services more frequently are more likely to be satisfied with life than those who do not.
