Abstract
This study compared and analyzed factors affecting the happiness index of multicultural families in the metropolitan area and non-metropolitan area. As a result of analyzing the happiness index as a dependent variable, it was found that the factors affecting the metropolitan and non-metropolitan were different. As a result, in the metropolitan, the higher the subjective health level, social environment, participation in social activities, and quality of life index, the lower the subjective stress and depression, the higher the happiness index. In the non-metropolitan, the higher the subjective health level, social environment, and participation in social activities, the lower the subjective stress and depression, the higher the happiness index. It was found that there is a difference in the factors that influence the happiness index of multicultural families in the metropolitan and non-metropolitan. Therefore, in order to increase the happiness index of multicultural families, it is necessary to find a different method depending on the metropolitan and the non-metropolitan.
