Happiness is a fundamental human goal pursued and valued across different countries and cultures. To what extent do Chinese people feel happy about their life in the 21st century? What factors are associated with their evaluation of happiness? Drawing on recent empirical evidence from urban China, this paper examines whether and how happiness is associated with individual attitudes, activities and circumstances as well as broader social contexts. This research contributes to happiness studies from a sociological perspective.
