WHAT affects the quality of our life the most? More than 500 Slovaks answered this question in a survey conducted for the Bayer company in June. A similar survey was also conducted in the Czech Republic and revealed some differences in the character between the two nations, Bayer wrote in its press release.

Most respondents (57 percent in Slovakia and 61.1 percent in the Czech Republic) indicated health as the most important aspect of quality of life. About one half of the respondents (49.4 percent in Slovakia and 51.4 percent in the Czech Republic) placed a high level of importance of interpersonal relations, family and friends. These were followed by financial certainty and creature comforts, for which 48.3 percent Slovaks and 49.7 percent of Czechs cited as important.

As many as 27 percent of Slovaks see a relationship between quality of life and job satisfaction, which is 10 percentage points more than in the Czech Republic. By contrast, Czechs place a much bigger emphasis on a stress-free life and mental wellbeing, which is linked to a holistic approach to life. As many as 25 percent of Czech respondents marked this as an important factor, while in Slovakia it was only 15 percent. Other aspects cited by Slovak and Czech respondents were the environment and quality food.
