  3. Abstract:

       Undoubtedly, in order to have a developed society, the members of the society must be health both psychologically and physically. Happiness is one of the main effective variables which are of great importance during the period of adolescence. During such period, persons are able to make main decisions relative to their future life. Considering the importance of happiness of the youth, the purpose of this study is to investigate the factors having influence on the happiness degree. Population of the study included all secondary students of Shiraz among whom 447 ones were selected as the sample. Data was gathered by use of Oxford’s questionnaire and then was analyzed using SPSS software. From the results, it became clear that there is a meaningful relationship between the students’ happiness and the variables such as cultural activities, athletic experiences, religious and artistic activities. Moreover, there is no relationship between the students’ happiness and variables such as the parents’ educational degree and job and the students’ pocket money. Finally, the results of multi – variable regression test revealed that being satisfied with leisure time and doing cultural activities are the two variables which have most influence on the students’ happiness level as the dependent variable.
