Happy Greeks

Greeks are almost as satisfied with life as the average European,  scoring 6.9 compared to the European Union average of 7.1 according to the latest data for 2023 published this week by Eurostat.

With Finland (7.8), Slovenia (7.7),  Sweden (7.5) leading the pack, in 2022, overall life satisfaction in the EU averaged 7.1, based on a scale from 0 (not satisfied at all) to 10 (fully satisfied). The score was slightly down compared with 7.3 in 2018 and consistent with 7.0 in 2013.

People were generally more satisfied with their personal relationships (with a score of 7.8) than with their personal finances (6.6).

Satisfaction with personal finances significantly increased between 2013 (with a score of 6.0) and 2018 and then remained steady until 2022 (6.6).

Satisfaction with personal relationships remained high and generally stable over the 2013-2022 period with a slight increase to 8.0 in 2018.

Satisfaction with financial situations ranged from 6.0 among those with lower secondary education to 7.1 among those with tertiary education. The disparities were less pronounced for satisfaction with personal relationships, with scores ranging from 7.6 among lower secondary education holders to 8.0 among tertiary education holders.
