Abstract
Elderly happiness is a situation which describes the positive emotions felt by individuals, impacting on positive activities carried out in daily life. One of the factors that influence the happiness of the elderly is a cultural background. A culture which relates to values, beliefs, habits, and daily activities could determine happiness. The purpose of this study was to find out the happiness among the elderly of Javanese, Madurese, and Banjarese. The design of the study is quantitative descriptive. The subjects were Javanese, Madurese, and Banjarese elderly, aged 56-75 years, totaling 117 people. The measuring instrument used was the Happiness Orientation Scale from Seligman. The analysis of the research data was conducted using percentage analysis to determine the level of happiness among the elderly with different demographic backgrounds. The results showed that the majority of the elderly of Javanese, Madurese, and Banjarese showed a moderate level of happiness, both men and women, while the Madurese elderly showed a higher level of happiness compared to Javanese and Banjarese elderly.
