A GOOD MEA­SURE

ELLE (Canada) - - Politics -

Ev­ery year, the ELLE net­work con­ducts a global sur­vey on the sub­ject of hap­pi­ness, polling over 30,000 women from 44 coun­tries. (NB: The av­er­age re­spon­dent was be­tween 15 and 34, univer­sity ed­u­cated and em­ployed with no chil­dren.) Here are some stand­out stats:

45% said that money is the one thing that would make them hap­pier. 35% aren’t pleased with their ap­pear­ance. 79% be­lieve that the lives of women are “im­prov­ing” in their coun­try. 39% said their great­est source of hap­pi­ness is their fam­ily life. (In Canada, that was 44%.) 30% of Cana­dian re­spon­dents are not in­volved with any char­i­ta­ble causes. 63% of Cana­dian re­spon­dents are gen­er­ally happy with the qual­ity of their lives.
