Why are men happier than women?

This is just plain stupid:

"Krueger's data, for instance, show that the average time devoted to dusting has fallen significantly in recent decades. There haven't been any dust-related technological breakthroughs, so houses are probably just dirtier than they used to be."

30, 40 years ago, when I was kid, nobody I knew had a someone else clean their house - that was for "rich" people. Now, most married women work, and one of the things they do with the wages they earn is hire someone to dust. I don't know a lot about these studies, the methodologies, etc. - but come on, stating something like the above, that "houses are probably just dirtier than they used to be" after citing all this "data" is just idiotic.
