Satisfaction with Life

At the end of 2020 Polish people were generally happy with their lives, although a little less so than a year earlier. Over three quarters of those surveyed (78%) in December declared that, overall, they were satisfied with their lives as a whole, while almost a fifth (17%) said they were moderately happy. Only four in every hundred respondents (4%) said they were unhappy. In comparison with the previous survey, in 2019, a record year as regards satisfaction with life as a whole, there was a drop in the number of those who were happy, with a rise in those who were moderately happy or not happy at all. These results are close to those of two years previously and better than all earlier ones collected between 1994 and 2017.

More on this subject in the CBOS report.
This ‘Current Events and Problems’ survey (367) was conducted using a mixed-mode procedure on a representative sample of named adult residents of Poland, randomly selected from the National Identity Number (PESEL) register.
Respondents independently selected one of the following methods:
– Computer Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI);
– Computer Assisted Telephone Interview (CATI), respondents receiving researchers’ telephone numbers in an introductory letter from CBOS;
– Computer Assisted Web Interview (CAWI), where respondents filled in the online questionnaire independently, gaining access by means of a login and password provided in an introductory letter from CBOS.
In all three cases the questionnaire had the same structure and comprised the same questions. The survey was carried out between 30 November and 10 December 2020 inclusive on a sample of 1010 people (42.2% using the CAPI method, 44% CATI and 13.9% CAWI).
CBOS has been conducting statutory research using the above procedure since May 2020, stating in each case the percentage of personal, telephone and internet interviews.
