Three-quarters of Ukrainians say they are happy people. This is evidenced by the data of the all-Ukrainian sociological survey “Who we are: a study of Ukrainian society on the 30th anniversary of Ukraine’s independence,” conducted by the Ukrainian Institute for the Future.

As the survey results show, 39% of respondents are sure that they are happy, and 37% believe that they are rather happy.

Residents of different regions hardly differ in defining themselves as happy people. The differences make up only a few percent: West – 78%, Center – 77%, South – 77%, East – 73%, Donbas – 75%.

There are no obvious differences in defining oneself as a happy person according to the age criterion. However, this share is the highest among young people compared to other generations. That is, 49% of young people are sure that they are happy people, and 38% believe that they are rather happy. Meanwhile, 40% of respondents aged 31-54 say they are happy, 39% are rather happy. As for the older generation, aged 55 and over, 33% are sure that they are happy, 36% say they are rather happy.

Background

A total of 5,000 face-to-face interviews of citizens aged 18 and over were held. The results are representative, both at the level of the whole country and at the level of macro-regions. The sampling error at the level of the whole country with a probability of 0.95 does not exceed 1.41%, at the regional level – 3.16%.
