Slovaks becoming more satisfied

Slovak citizens are becoming increasingly satisfied with their lives, according to the latest Eurobarometer 67 survey.

The survey was presented by the Representative of the European Commission in Slovakia at a press conference on July 13.

It shows that 72 percent of Slovak citizens are satisfied with their lives, compared with the EU average of 80 percent.

While Slovaks' satisfaction rate is consistently lower than that of citizens of other EU member states, a moderate but continuous increase in satisfaction can be observed in Slovakia over the past several years. Since the autumn of 2004, the number of very and rather satisfied citizens has grown by 13 percentage points.

Slovaks, like other EU citizens, consider unemployment to be the biggest problem their country faces. This is a problem in the eyes of 36 percent of Slovaks, compared to the EU average of 34 percent.

The survey was conducted by TNS AISA SK in Slovakia between April 13 and May 1, on a sample of 1,106 respondents older than 16 years of age.
