Finns are satisfied with their housing conditions and relationships
In their lives, Finns are most satisfied with their housing conditions and relationships. The Finnish political decision-making system in turn gets the weakest grade. The data derive from Statistics Finland's Survey on Income and Living Conditions in connection with which data on Finns' subjective well-being and its various aspects was collected for the first time in 2013.
Finns' satisfaction with life in general is exactly 8. Women are slightly more satisfied with different aspects of life than men. The difference between the genders is most distinct in trust in the political decision-making system, where the average for men is 5.8 and for women 6.2.
