Poles the Happiest Nation in Europe: Report

Polish people are more satisfied with life than the citizens of any other European country, according to a survey by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. The survey covered 39,000 households in 34 countries from Britain and France to Albania and Ukraine. It found that in Poland, the effects of the recent financial crises were felt by less than a third of respondents. In other postcommunist countries, the figure averaged 70 percent. While the crisis did not affect the richest people in Poland, it did not affect the poorest either. Only the middle class suffered.

According to the report by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, Poles are among the most satisfied nations regarding their living conditions. “They are also the most optimistic about their children’s future,” the report says.

Fifty-four percent of Polish respondents are confident their children will enjoy more prosperity, which is 5 percentage points more than in the bank’s previous survey from 2006.

Polish citizens are less satisfied with the market economy than citizens in other countries in Central and Eastern Europe. A mere 30 percent of Polish respondents consider the market economy to be the best economic system, while four years ago the figure was 10 percentage points higher.
