Comparing the Happiness Effects of Real and On-line Friends

pengen berbagi hasil riset terbaru yg diterbitkan NBER (The National Bureau of Economic Research) di US tentang #online friends & happiness

Helliwell & Huang memakai data 5000 individu di Kanada utk meneliti seberapa besar pengaruh #online friends thdp kebahagiaan.

#online friends: temen di facebook, twitter, path, dll. 2 ekonom yg berdomisili di Kanada ini lalu membandingkannya dg real-life friends.

data yg dipake lumayan anyar (tahun 2011) dan represent semua provinsi di Kanada. responden usia 16 thn ke atas. #online

pengukuran kebahagiaan di survey ini sifatnya subjektif. responden ditanyai seberapa setuju dg pernyataan “aku puas dg hidupku”.#online

ada jg pertanyaan ttg tekanan/stress: “seberapa stress kamu?” bisa jawab dari “very low” sampe “very high”. #online

nah sementara itu utk mengukur faktor #online friends, data yg dipake hanya mengukur jumlah saja.

kedua peneliti lalu melakukan estimasi dgn mengontrol faktor usia, pendidikan, jenis kelamin, & faktor2 demografi lainnya. hasilnya?#online

hasilnya: makin byk real-life friends –> makin bahagia; makin byk #online friends –> biasa saja/tdk ada pengaruh.

hasil regresi jg menunjukkan bhw besar pengaruh real-life friends tdk jauh berbeda dg besar pengaruh income terhadap kebahagiaan.#online

jadi kalo pendapatanmu kecil, bertemanlah yg banyak, niscaya kamu akan makin bahagia. tp jgn cari #online friends ya.

begitulah kurang lebih isi makalah Helliwell & Huang ini. full paper (free) bisa diunduh disini: http://m.nber.org/papers/w18690.pdf … #online

makalahnya masih segar, baru diunggah januari 2013 ini. lumayan kan bisa buat jd bahan obrolan kalo lagi nongkrong2 sama temen? 😉#online

jadi, siapa bilang ilmu ekonomi itu cuma ngomongin soal APBN, kebijakan moneter, dan perilaku konsumen/produsen?

Life is the coffee, while jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain life, and do not change the quality of life.

"I dont want to live in a hand-me-down world of others experiences. I want to write about me, my discoveries, my fears, my feelings, about me"

Biar sejarah yang bicara ......

Menggali jejak sukma nagara | Mengibas cakrawala mengepak mayapada | Melesatkan pikiran yang tak tembus peluru | Membiarkan hati bersuara | Karena masa lalu mereka adalah masa depan kami
