The British Medical Journal published a paper describing a study of 4,739 people followed from 1983 to 2003 as part of the famous Framingham Heart Study.
These individuals were embedded in a larger network of 12,067 people; they had an average of 11 connections to others in the social network (including to friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors); and their happiness was assessed every few years using a standard measure.
We found that each additional happy friend increases a person’s probability of being happy by about 9%.
