Satisfaction with all the examined aspects of life significantly prevails in the population.
The three highest values of satisfaction on an eleven-point scale were chosen for most aspects by about half of the respondents. A lower share was found for future security (40%) and health (45%).
Only 5-11% of respondents were dissatisfied (points 1-4).
Satisfaction is conditioned by the achieved education, the material level of households and the state of health. The level of satisfaction is not related to gender and is not linearly dependent on age.
Concerns about the impact of coronavirus on the household economy are reflected in the level of satisfaction.
