Recent data from the Office of National Statistics, recording levels of personal well-being in the UK between October 2015 and September 2016, has revealed the areas of the UK where life satisfaction is lowest.
Members of the public across the UK were asked the following four questions, and asked to respond on a scale of 0 to 10:
- overall, how satisfied are you with your life nowadays?
- overall, to what extent do you feel the things you do in your life are worthwhile?
- overall, how happy did you feel yesterday?
- overall, how anxious did you feel yesterday?
According to the responses, the areas of the UK with the lowest levels of well-being are all in England, and six of them are in London.
Office for National Statistics representative Matthew Steel, discussing the findings, said: “At a time when economic measures are generally improving, this is not necessarily reflected in how people tell us they are feeling about their lives.
“Whilst it is too early to say why anxiety ratings have increased slightly and why life satisfaction, happiness and worthwhile ratings have levelled off in the past 12 months, we know from our previous research that factors impacting most on people’s personal well-being include health, work situation and relationship status.”

The timing of the release of the figures however, could not be more suspicions seeing that a general election has only just been called by the Prime Minister
And within 24 hours, a report conducted almost a year ago is being suddenly released.
The motives are highly questionable seeing that all or almost every one of the areas mentioned are in Councils held by the opposition Labour Party.
Electioneering has formally began….
