The National Statistical Office of Great Britain annually conducts a sociological survey to find out how much the people of the country are satisfied with their lives. Employees of the service ask the British standard questions: How satisfied are you with your life? How important is what you do? How happy did you feel yesterday? How worrying did you feel yesterday? Then the results are calculated and the score is determined for each region of the country. This year, the top places from the end of the list were taken by most of the London districts.
The most "unhappy" one is Hackney: from 40 possible points he scored only 28.35. It is followed by Lambeth (28.54), Lewisham (28.64), Greenwich (28.86) and Islington (28.87). And the happiest people in London were residents of Hounslow (31.12) and Harrow (30.6). In general, Great Britain included in the list of the worst also many areas of Ireland and the East of England. And the most favorable for life was the Craven district in North Yorkshire, which scored 33.23 points out of 40. But according to experts, the overall picture was optimistic. After all, in general, satisfaction with life has risen in recent years, despite the uncertain political situation.
