I want more details about happiness!

There's a piece here looking at the recent results of the government survey into happiness, satisfaction and anxiety. They found that employed people are happier, more satisfied, less anxious, and feel their lives are more worthwhile than unemployed people. Staggering, I know.

But frankly, this irks me. Because the post also points out that ill people are less happy/satisfied/relaxed/etc than working people. And, presumably, unemployed people are more likely to be sick than employed people, what with disabilities, long-term sickness, etc. So I'd like to see some figures comparing employed healthy people with unemployed healthy people.

So I wander off to the data source, and discover that they don't give it to you broken down nearly enough to do that.

And now I have an itch I can't scratch. Dammit.
