On money and happiness: There is a clear linear correlation between income and personal satisfaction. The percent saying they are very satisfied with the way things are going in their lives rises from 41% among those earning less than $30,000 to 53% among those in the $30,000 to $49,999 bracket, and reaches 75% among those making more than $75,000.
