In this edition of Brookings Data Now: the most unhappy age; Europe's trade with Russia; American teens working less; most poor students enrolled in worst schools; Las Vegas finishes last.
The level of happiness and years of age are plotted on a U-shaped curve; but there are differences among countries and based on circumstances.
This is half of all Russian trade.
In 2000, 44 percent of American teens worked.
Nearly a third,or 32 percent, of poor students are enrolled in the lowest quintile schools.
In terms of returning to its pre-recession level of economic performance across a range of indicators, the Las Vegas metro area is last, while the Austin metro area is first.
