Is ignorance bliss?

A good education is generally believed to be key for achieving success in life. But does it make us happier?


In his bachelor thesis, Ali Durmaz examines this question using data from the German Socio Economic Panel (GSOEP). By including various control variables, he tries to minimize potential biases, for example, because more healthy people are more happy and more likely to get education. He finds that overall obtaining education is associated with lower life satisfaction.
