Indigenous teens happy: study HaPPy: Local teens reanna Mamarika, Jessie Herbert, Margaretta Wurramara, Josephine Lalara, Sherry-ann Lalara and roshania Lalara. The first study to investigate the happiness of Indigenous Australian teenagers has revealed strength despite hardship. The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University study interviewed 504 Indigenous teens. It found that they were about as happy as their non-Indigenous peers. Lead investigator Dr Adrian Tomyn said many people assumed that because Indigenous Australians score poorly on measures of quality of life such as health, education, employment and housing, they would have equally poor levels of happiness. But our study has revealed that Indigenous teenagers are, on average, as happy with their lives as the general Australian population; a sign of great resilience in the face of adverse circumstances, Dr Adrian said. But the results also showed that female Indigenous teens have significantly lower happiness than Indigenous males, and are four times more likely than males to score in the high-risk range. Indigenous adolescents scored lower than mainstream Australian adults on the domains of Standard of living, Achieving in life and Future security. However, Indigenous adolescents scored higher on the domains of Community connection, and Safety. Researchers studied subjective wellbeing (SWB), which is the scientific term for happiness.
