    Description: We analyze data on happiness for Argentina and Uruguay. The focus is put on self-reported health status as a key aspect in increasing happiness levels. Then, the probabilty of being happy is estimated by probit models. Results show that the main relationship is between happiness and health status. Whether this is a causal effect or a correlation, is not clear. This issue is explo red using matching methods, finding that a good health status increases the probability of being happy between 31 and 46 percentage points in Uruguay, 15 and 27 in Argentina; and 17 and 27 for the region.

    Description: In this paper we analyze the links between health status (measured by selfreported illness occurrence) and individuals' socioeconomic situation. Using the annual households surveys of Uruguay for the period 1991 to 2000, we compute probit models and find that men, unmarried, young people, occupied, those who do not live alone and those with more than 5 years of education, have a smaller probability of reporting a bad health status. We also find that the probability of reporting a bad health status has a descendent trend in the period, falling from 0,33 in 1991 to 0,25 in 2000.
