Will more technology make you happier?

This graph is a screen shot from an interactive site, in which you can identify the individual countries.

Note that at a given level of technology, there is often a very wide range of reported happiness.

Countries with very little technology are almost surely very poor countries, and other research has shown that people show increases in happiness with increased income, if they are poor to begin with.

Go to the website for more insights into the meaning of the graph.
