Lucas Hoferer ­­– Master Student

My name is Lucas Hoferer and I'm studying Economics: Data Science and Policy at the Martin Luther University in Halle. As part of the RuWell project, I am working on my master's thesis, which focuses on subjective well-being and livability in rural areas. The core of the thesis lies in the development of a livability concept for rural areas. The developed concept is afterwards compared with the existing empirical evidence of the World Data Base of Happiness. The results provide a suitable starting point to pursue further research questions regarding subjective well-being and livability in rural areas.
