The latest personal well-being estimates suggest the UK is getting happier. 

The Governments ‘giddy-meter’ has measured small BUT significant improvements in all the UK countries across the four measurements,  Happiness, Life Satisfaction, Anxiety and Worthwhile.

The proportions of people reporting the highest levels of personal well-being have grown since 2011/12 for each of the four measures.

The greatest gain has been in reduced anxiety levels, the proportion of people in the UK reporting very low anxiety grew between 2011/12 and
2013/14.

The ‘moaning southerners’ of London, as you would expect, reported the lower personal well-being on average.

Those in the West Midlands reported the greatest increase in well being rates versus last year.

The people of Northern Ireland appear to be the happiest, which has been the case since the Office of National (ONS) statistics started to collect happy stats.

The happiness index measures on a scale between 1 and 10 – so 0-4 is classed as low, 5-6 medium 7-8 high and 9-10 very high.

Locally people in Flintshire appear to be a content lot on a whole, 34.56% of those asked said they were VERY HAPPY which is ahead of the Wales and UK averages.

Surprisingly, significantly less people reported being VERY HAPPY in Chester, Cheshire and the Wirral.

Interestingly, Wrexham is the VERY HAPPIEST place in Wales! where nearly 40% say they are VERY HAPPY, infact Wrexham has one of the highest VERY HAPPY scores in the whole of the UK…..
