A lot of money makes happy, is another result of the survey. People with a high salary are usually much happier than people with a low salary. Austrians who earn more than 3.600 Euro every month have a percentage of happy people of 75 percent. People who do not earn more than 900 Euro every month have a percentage of only 45 percent.
