Men are happier with money, while women find greater joy in friendships and relationships with their children, co-workers and bosses, a new global survey reveals.

The online survey of 28,153 people in more than 51 countries by global marketing and information firm Nielsen found that as the world grapples with a recession and financial markets remain volatile, many people are reminding themselves that money can't buy happiness.

The Nielsen Happiness Study found that globally, women are happier than men in 48 of the 51 countries surveyed in April 2008, and only in Brazil, South Africa and Vietnam were men found to be happier than women.

Because they are happier with non-economic factors, women's happiness is more recession-proof which might explain why women around the world are happier in general than men are, Nielsen Vice President of Consumer Research Bruce Paul said in a statement.

Japanese women reported the greatest difference and are 15 percent happier than Japanese men. Women are also more optimistic about the future, scoring higher than men on predictions of their happiness in the next six months.

Women were also more content with their sex lives, the study found. Japanese and New Zealand women reported the greatest difference in satisfaction with their sex lives.

Men are generally happier with their physical health than women, and this is especially pronounced in South Africa. Egypt bucks the trend, with women rating their happiness with their health considerably higher than men.

Globally, men rated their happiness with their mental health higher than women. This was echoed in Belgium, South Korea, Mexico, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Egypt, and Israel.

There are three main drivers of happiness globally, according to the study: personal financial situation, mental health and job/career. Being satisfied with your partner is also important for happiness.

一项最新的全球调查显示,男人因金钱而快乐,而女人的快乐感更多地源于友情以及与孩子、同事和老板的关系。

这项由尼尔森全球营销信息公司开展的在线调查共有来自超过51个国家的28153人参加。调查成果显示,面对现在的全球经济衰退和金融市场的骚动,很多人开始提示自己金钱其实不能买到快乐。

这项于本年四月开展的 尼尔森快乐感大调查 标明,在参加调查的51个国家中,有48个国家的女性比该国的男性快乐,只有巴西、南非和越南破例。

尼尔森公司消费者调查部副主管布鲁斯?保罗在声明中称: 因为女性的快乐感更多地取决于非经济因素,所以她们的快乐感不容易遭到经济危机的影响。这或答应以解释为什么从全球规模来看女性的快乐感整体高于男性。
