A NEW SURVEY shows that 62 percent of Slovaks are happy with their lives, two percent below the EU-candidate average.
A recently published Eurobarometer survey also showed that only eight percent of Slovaks were very happy with their lives, while nine percent were completely unhappy and 29 percent were more unhappy than happy.
In the EU, meanwhile, around 80 percent of people were happy with their lives.
From among the ten candidate countries scheduled to enter the EU next year, inhabitants of Cyprus, Slovenia, and Malta ranked high in the survey, while Romanians and Bulgarians were among the least happy with their lives.
