Croatians are second bottom of the European Union in terms of life satisfaction. According to a new survey by Eurostat the Finnish are the most satisfied citizens in the European Union whilst Bulgarians are least happy.
In a survey carried out by Eurostat, the statistical wing of the EU, entitled “How satisfied are people with their lives?” “Overall, how satisfied are you with your life these days?” people across the European Union were asked.
On a scale from 0 (“not satisfied at all”) to 10 (“fully satisfied”), the mean (average) life satisfaction of EU residents aged 16 and over was 7.3 in 2018, an increase compared with 7.0 in 2013.
The highest life satisfaction was measured in Finland and Austria, with the Finns averaging 8.1 on the survey. Whilst the lowest was in Bulgaria which saw only 5.4 on the survey, followed by Croatia in second bottom position with 6.3, and Greece and Lithuania both with 6.4.
