The present study aimed to provide theoretical and empirical explanation of the analytical model in which the role of social health and its dimensions is as the external variables and social happiness as the internal variable. Generally, in the happiness area of research, more than one theory is required for the sake of explaining the concept of happiness. Accordingly, in the present study the Keys Social Health Theory and its five-dimensional indicators were implemented as a theoretical framework. The study conducted by the survey research method and statistical population included all the male and female married citizens of Isfahan in 2017. The data were analyzed by SPSS and Amos software. The correlation coefficient test showed that social health and its three dimensions including social cohesion, social acceptance and social dependence might have a close relationship with social happiness. However, there were no significant or meaning relationships among social prosperity and social participation with the concept of social happiness. Moreover, the estimated value in Structural equation modeling (SEM) showed that 0.38 of the social inclusion variance was due to social health. Besides, the significant level of SEM indicated that the calculated impact factor had a meaningful difference with zero. Therefore, it can be claimed that social health might have a potential effect on social happiness.
