This whole premise is sort of weakly constructed and includes very broad generalizations.

What if, like me, you're an urban city resident that has to commute because there are no jobs in their city??? Should I move to the suburbs to be happy?

I lived in downtown TO did the transit commuter thing, to get to work it usually took me about an hour each way and most days I couldn't even sit down... it was worse than my current commute.

People make their choices and people decide if they're happy or not with those choices. Life is full of compromises, the suburban lifestyle is one that many people are willing to make sacrifices for. To assume they're all miserable because of it is a bit of a stretch. Do they like they're commute, probably not, but did the people that did this study ask any follow up questions? Maybe the person commuting would have been more miserable if they were stuck in a small 2 or 3 bedroom downtown condo.

This cracks me up though:

"The additional bathroom is a completely superfluous asset for at least 362 or 363 days each year

What data did they crunch to come up with the statistic that people will only need to use the bathroom at the same time as someone else 2 or 3 days a year???
