It is sunny, and I’m still depressed

For this week’s PIG-IE session we have the opportunity to read a draft of a paper from Richard Lucas (MSU; richard.e.lucas@gmail.com) and Nicole Lawless (U of Oregon) testing the relation between the weather and life satisfaction–in 1 million people.

The paper is still under review, so if you have pertinent comments, like “Did you do a power analysis?” or “Have you considered replicating that in a smaller sample?” I’m sure Rich will be grateful (well, maybe not for those questions).

And, whatever you do, don’t revise your intro psych lecture about mood and weather.  We can’t trust findings based on so many people.
