Freedman’s survey showed that people living in small towns and rural areas consider themselves no happier than do people living in big cities.

no happier than do people living
not any happier than do people living
not any happier than do people who live
no happier than are people who are living
not as happy as are people who live

I did not go to the party.

Good explanation of no vs not in the url below. According the explanation, I think B is also grammatically correct but we pick A as it is more concise.
