A new report reveals where people feel most positive about their lives.
The report looked at subjective well-being, defined as life satisfaction. Did people feel like their lives were dominated by positive experiences and feelings, or negative ones? Some sample questions: Did you enjoy something you did yesterday? Were you proud of something you did yesterday? Were you treated with respect yesterday? In each country, a representative sample of no more than 1,000 people, age 15 or older, was surveyed. The poll was scored numerically on a scale of 1-100.
The average score was 62.4.
