The first part of this data set (PaperNET = 1) was collected with the paper and pencil method from a non-volunteer student sample during an instructional demonstration (PaperNET = 1) . The second part (PaperNET = 2) was collectd online from adult volunteers using the Qualtrics research platform. The data was collected with the aim to determine the psychometric properties of a translated Hungarian short version happiness scale based on the English version of the Subjective Happiness Scale (Lyubomirsky and Lepper, Social Indicators Research, 46, 137–155, 1999).
