In 2013, after a sharp decline in 2012, the citizens’ satisfaction with life in general shows a substantial stability. Instead, the satisfaction with specific aspects of life as family, friends, health, leisure, coves. Also worsens the satisfaction with the economic situation both at family and personal level. These are the main results of the survey Multiscopo “Aspects of daily life” that took place in March 2013 and which noted the various aspects of citizens’ satisfaction.

To the question “Currently, how satisfied are you of your life as a whole?” (with a score from 0 to 10, where 0 means “not at all satisfied” and 10 “very satisfied”), the average rating given by the population aged 14 and over is equal to 6.8. Compared to the past the level of subjective well-being slightly decreases in the territorial contexts where it was higher.

The share of those who attribute a satisfaction score between 8 and 10 to life is stable at 35.0%, after having fallen by 8 percentage points between 2010 and 2012. Doubled during the same period, those who express a negative judgment (0-3) from 2.3% to 4.5%.

In 2013, people who say they are satisfied with their family relationships are 90.2%. A lower percentage, 81.8% , is satisfied with their friendships. A decrease in the levels of satisfaction has concerned the relational aspects of life: in 2013, 33.4% is very satisfied with family relationships against 36.8% in 2012, as well as those who are very pleased with their friends relationships decreased from 26.6 % to the current 23.7%.

80,3% of the population expresses a positive opinion (“very or fairly satisfied”) about their health status, while 13.5% is not very satisfied, and 4.5% is not at all satisfied. In this area are recorded, however, lower levels of satisfaction compared to 2012 (down from 18.5% to 16.5%, the proportion of very satisfied).
To declare themselves very or fairly satisfied with leisure time is 63.0% of the population, a portion much lower than for the other aspects of daily life already considered.
