The main purpose of this research is to compare the gratitude and happiness of the three age groups of Taiwanese youth, middle-aged and elderly. This research uses the "Oxford Happiness Questionnaire " and the "Gratitude Scale", and the age groups of 18-30 years old, 31-65 years old and over 65 years old are the research participants. The results revealed that middle-aged and elderly people are significantly happier than young people, and the gratitude scores of middle-aged and elderly people are also higher than that of young people. The correlation between gratitude and happiness among the three age groups is significant, indicating that being grateful is indeed happier. As for the comparison of the gender differences between the three age groups, whether it is happiness or gratitude, they have not reached significant levels. That is, the happiness or gratitude of men and women among the three age groups of Taiwanese youth, middle-aged, and elderly people did not show significant differences.
