En este trabajo, para Argentina y Uruguay, se utilizan medidas autorreportadas de satisfacción con la vida y estado de salud individual, estimándose a través de modelos probit la probabilidad de que un individuo sea feliz. Encontramos que la principal correlación positiva es entre la felicidad y el buen estado de salud. Para controlar la potencial endogeneidad de esta variable, se utilizan técnicas de correspondencia encontrando que tener buena salud aumenta entre 31 y 46 puntos porcentuales la probabilidad de ser feliz en Uruguay, entre 15 y 27 puntos en Argentina; y entre 17 y 27 puntos para la región.
