From the beginning of human civilization, human beings have been exploring the source of happiness. Capitalists believed that economic growth would bring us happiness, but a small, poor Buddhist country - Bhutan - has dispelled the myth with the concept of Gross National Happiness. Today, the concept of happiness has evolved from the field of psychology to all disciplines. Many researchers are exploring how environmental psychology/behavioral psychology influences residents' sense of happiness. The goal of this study is to explore how various environmental factors influence residents' sense of happiness. Through statistical analysis of 473 samples, the results showed that factors like green area, community layout, aesthetics, transportation service and social service significantly influenced residents' sense of happiness. Among all the factors, transportation service and social service simultaneously influence "satisfied" and "joyful", the two factors related to residents' sense of happiness; community layout and aesthetics are significantly correlated to "satisfied"; green area and business service significantly influences "joyful". The results of this study can be used as reference for professionals as they make relevant decisions.
