United Kingdom 'a more upbeat nation' in 2017

United Kingdom 'a more upbeat nation' in 2017”

The number of people classing their happiness as low remained unchanged, and the beancounters conclude it indicates that "increases in mean life satisfaction are being driven by more people reporting the highest levels of well-being, rather than a decrease in those reporting the lowest levels of well-being".

This has been the same pattern since the ONS began life satisfaction surveys in 2011.

The statistics, compiled between April 2016 and March this year, show an increase in the UK-wide average for happiness and life satisfaction, compared with the previous year.

Residents were asked the question "Overall, how anxious did you feel yesterday?", where 0 is "not at all anxious" and 10 is "completely anxious".

There was also a non-significant increase in anxiety and in people feeling that the things we do in life are worthwhile compared to past year.

Both scored 7.4 out of 10, while North Warwickshire came out on top with 8.7 against a United Kingdom average of 7.9.

They also gave above-average ratings of their daily happiness and ranked their anxiety at a lower level than anywhere else in the UK.

The ONS acknowledged the figures "may surprise some", given they cover a period of "political change and uncertainty".

Meanwhile, the 2016 results revealed that Londoners were the least satisfied, ranking their own happiness at 7.51 out of 10.

"These are factors we believe may account for some people's increased sense of personal wellbeing".

Last year's survey also ranked Northern Ireland as the most content place in the United Kingdom, while nationwide those aged 65 to 79 were found to be the most satisfied with life.

'Considering this, it is interesting to see that the latest figures covered by economic well-being show that, between Quarter 4 2016 and Quarter 1 2017, consumers reported perceived improvements in their own financial situation and the general economic situation over the previous year'.

But the rating for anxiety went up from 2.89 to 2.9 out of 10. Those living in the capital also reported having the highest levels of anxiety.
