This study seeks to expand the literature by investigating the effect of health status on happiness, happiness on health status, life satisfaction on happiness as well as some demographic variables in order test the existing knowledge on elderly men (ages 60 years and older) in Jamaica. A stratified random sample of 2,000 elderly men in Jamaica was used to carry out this study. The data were collected with a 137-item self-administered questionnaire and entered, retrieved and stored in SPSS for Windows 16.0 (SPSS Inc; Chicago IL, USA). Happiness was found not correlated with health status of elderly men in Jamaica nor was health status associated with happiness; and that there was no difference based on area of residence. Happiness and health status cannot be used to proxy each other for the elderly cohort as they are independent events.
