The data was collected as part of Eurofound’s European Quality of Life Survey. Life satisfaction and happiness were recorded on a scale of 1 to 10 with the following questions: Q4 ‘All things considered, how satisfied would you say you are with your life these days? Please tell me on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 means very dissatisfied and 10 means very satisfied’ and Q5 ‘Taking all things together on a scale of 1 to 10, how happy would you say you are? Here 1 means you are very unhappy and 10 means you are very happy’.
