Homeownership is Linked to Happiness

Where people live matters for their well-being according to recent survey data from the OECD Better Life Index.  The OECD Better Life Index gauges the quality of life worldwide by looking at various factors.   Housing outperformed all other indicators monitored on the well-being index – like education, safety, and environment – with 75 percent of U.S. states ranking housing as most important to happiness.  View how housing stacks up in your area at the OECD Regional Well-being website.
