How satisfied are people with their lives in the European Union? – A new multi-dimensional data collection

European Commission – EUROSTAT

20 March 2015

“Overall, how satisfied are you with your life these days?” people across the European Union (EU) were asked.

Life satisfaction represents how a respondent evaluates or appraises his or her life taken as a whole.

It has a prominent role as it can be regarded as a key indicator of subjective well-being.

On a scale from 0 (“not satisfied at all”) to 10 (“fully satisfied”), nearly 80% of residents aged 16 and over in the EU rated their overall life satisfaction in 2013 at 6 and higher, with an average (mean) satisfaction of 7.1.
