Description

The objective of this project is to produce a measure of revealed utility. Utility will be measured using proxies such as suicide, heart attacks, hospitalization due to anxiety or depression, etc. The assumption is that low utility leads to psychological distress which can adversely affect individuals. The goal is to build a dataset based on The Center for Disease Control's Behavior Risk Factor Survalience System. Then see how changes in the stock market and economy impact utility as proxied by our measures. The proposed outcome is to have a measure of perceived utility that can be used to find correlations between happiness (utility) and asset/stock pricing.
