In Fallout Shelter when a child is born, his/her happiness status is 50% until they get adult and get to do some satisfying activity.

I was wondering if children's happiness values do affect overall happiness stats and thus if they affect daily overseer report.


I can tell you the thing I've seen.

My dweller wives just gave birth to 6 children in the last minute (I was afk in the game for some hours after they were pregnant).

The overall happyness was 86% at 102 people. After the birth I've got 108 people with 86% happyness. If those children would count to it, it should be lower. But it was still the same.

I think they count after they are adults.


Neither children nor dwellers outside the vault (including exploring or new ones) count towards overall happiness.


All adults 100% happiness. 2 children at 50%. Total happiness 99%. They must count a little.
