"Happiness expert" Paul Dolan's claim that married women admit to being less happy than unmarried women when their spouse is out of the room was based off a misreading of the data, adjunct professor Gray Kimbrough has revealed.
“Married people are happier than other population subgroups, but only when their spouse is in the room when they’re asked how happy they are. When the spouse is not present: f***ing miserable,” Dolan said, citing the American Time Use Survey, a national survey available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and used for academic research on how Americans live their lives.
The error was caught by Gray Kimbrough, an economist at American University’s School of Public Affairs, who uses the survey data — and realized that Dolan must have gotten it wrong. “I’ve done a lot with time-use data,” Kimbrough told me. “It’s a phone survey.” The survey didn’t even ask if a respondent’s spouse was in the room.Imagine my shock.
Here's Kimbrough's thread debunking Dolan on Twitter:

A similar screw-up just happened with leftist Naomi Wolf:
Tons of other books pushed by our media, such as Stephen Jay Gould's "The Mismeasure of Man," were outright scientific frauds pushed to advance leftist egalitarianism.
One of the media's top experts on abortion in the 1960's and 1970's, abortionist Dr. Bernard Nathanson, later in life admitted he pushed fake statistics to the media to trick the public into believing most Americans supported abortion.
Just as with this story, the media simply runs with the lie then buries the correction.
Remember, according to our ruling oligarchs, only propagandists like these should be allowed to have a voice on the internet. All the "conspiracy theorists" who said Iraq doesn't have WMDs and Trump didn't collude with Russia need to be banned entirely.
