Gallup has just released results of a new poll on mental health. Being a Republican correlates with better self-reported mental health; as does having a higher household income. Men's is higher than women's; whites' higher than blacks'; the more you go to church, the better for reported mental health; these aren't too terribly surprising.
This surprises me:
Percentage reporting excellent mental health:
Living with partner:41
Never Married: 47
I am used to hearing that married people are happier. What I've never heard is that the never married are right on their heels, and crushing three other categories! I mean, does anybody ever say anything postive about the never married? Hooray for us!!
