One of the most interesting subjects for a scientific researcher is people themselves. Humankind is the subject of the social sciences; namely, psychology, sociology, economics, anthropology, and political sciences. But these are still scientific backwaters, beyond the mainstream. This change can materialize in changing one's habits, changing one's job, changing one's family situation, buying new furniture, etc. Since all the domains in their turn depend on objectively measurable variables like income, age, etc., it is also possible to find the effect of additional income on all domains and to aggregate those effects into one effect with respect to life as a whole.
