|Abstract:||Owning a house is a dream for many people. Moreover, numerous countries support homeownership by providing financial contributions or tax advantages. We investigate whether homeownership makes people happy in Switzerland. Global research has shown mixed results so far. We use data from the Swiss Household Panel and apply different research designs. The findings show no or even negative evidence. Other factors such as the financial status of the household, health, age, and partnership have a much stronger impact on happiness.|
