  • Study in Europe eclipses notion home in the sun equals happiness

    Sun seekers who leave northern Europe for warmer climes are marginally less happy than those left behind, a study found.

The sun lovers scored 7.3 out of a possible 10 on average on a "happiness" scale while the stay-at-homes came in at an average of 7.5 percent, according to the study released on Wednesday by Dr David Bartram, a senior lecturer in the Department of Sociology at England's University of Leicester. "The key finding from the analysis is that people from northern Europe who migrated to southern Europe are less happy than the stayers in northern Europe," Bartram said.
