State by State Life Satisfaction in the United States

#1
The General Social Survey, "Monitoring the Future", and the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth don't have state by state data on life satisfaction.

I'm looking to explore the state-level relationship between male-female differences in life satisfaction and various metrics of gender egalitarianism (% of women in state legislatures, gender wage-gap, etc.)

This study did a similar analysis of data from Switzerland: http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007...009-0257-4

NLSY97 has life satisfaction: YTEL-55.

But apparently, does not have state of residence???

NLSY79 does not seem to have the same question, but it has state-level information.

It has a depression scale, however. DEPRESSION-7.

SEE R(38949.) I WAS HAPPY...

567 0 RARELY/NONE OF THE TIME/1 DAY
1014 1 SOME/A LITTLE OF THE TIME/1-2 DAYS
1693 2 OCCASIONALLY/MODERATE AMT OF THE TIME/3-4 DAYS
5699 3 MOST/ALL OF THE TIME/5-7 DAYS

Probably good enough.

State-level stuff is apparently not public. You have to apply.
