This morning, NBC News correspondent John Larson did a piece discussing who is happier: men or women. According to two studies by professors at Princeton University and the University of Pennsylvania, the results are in, and it turns out that men are happier than women. WATCH VIDEO
On average, the studies showed, women are unhappy about 90 minutes more per week than men.
According to The New York Times, this is a shift in happiness research since the 1970s, when women said they were slightly happier than men. One of the studies also indicates that since the 1960s, men have cut back on unpleasant activities and now relax more.
Women, meanwhile, are taking on more tasks than they did four decades ago. They have replaced housework with paid work, but that doesn't mean that the work at home has gone away. As such, women's "to do" lists have grown, but there is still a finite number of waking hours in which to get everything done. And it's stressful when things don't get crossed off those "to do" lists.
So what do you think -- do these studies get the happiness question right?
