Happiness is the reason of many evolutionary behaviors and being happy is the ability that can reduce the side effects of the industrial age. But, it has received less attention in academic and scientific terms. There is a great need for precise and scientific studies in order to find out who is happy and what happiness is. The aim of this study is to consider the effect of cultural capital on the amount of happiness of young women (aged 15-24) in Isfahan. This survey has used all of the 15-24 years old women of Isfahan as its samples that account to 239072. Because of the diversity of the living areas in terms of the population the Kokaran formula has been used with a 5 percent deviation of 200 people. The sampling method has been chosen based on the characteristics of each area. The results showed that there is a direct relation between social capital and happiness and this relation is much stronger in cognitive, emotional and social dimensions respectively. In the domain of cultural capital the main effect has been in the cultural means, cultural skills and finally cultural documents. The average feeling of happiness among young women in Isfahan was 54.53 with emotional, social and cognitive dimensions. The average cultural capital was 27.57. Based on the results, the cultural skill has the most frequency and the cultural documents have the least frequency.
