RIGA - The level of satisfaction of Latvian residents with their lives has remained broadly unchanged in recent years, according to a survey conducted by the research agency SKDS.

A survey conducted in July this year asked people to rate how satisfied or dissatisfied they were with their current life as a whole. The rating is asked on a ten-point scale, where "one" means "completely dissatisfied" and "ten" means "completely satisfied".

This year, the level of satisfaction of the population has reached an average of 6.93 points, which is 0.03 points more than a year ago. Over the last five years, the level of life satisfaction has remained almost unchanged, ranging from 6.9 to 6.97 points.

The highest satisfaction with one's life among the population was recorded in 2018, when the average measurement reached 6.97 points. The lowest indicator - 5.55 points - was registered in 2009, at the end of the three-year economic crisis.
