Given the wild swing in results in one year, I’m going to suggest that their survey methodology is flawed.
At $118,000 a year, the price tag for men’s happiness amounts to about twice as much as the $58,500 annually, on average, that Millennial woman say they need, according to a recent survey of 1,519 people age 21-37 by TD Ameritrade.
It’s also more than twice as much as the $55,000 that Millennial men said they needed to be happy just two years ago. Women reported only needing $48,500 to be happy in 2016.
Of course, we all know that money doesn’t always translate to happiness, so the premise of the question is flawed.
