Academic success 'key to happiness in life'
London, July 6 (ANI): Education does make you happier, a new study has suggested.
UK's Office for National Statistics found that the higher people's level of general education the more satisfied they were with their daily life and the more worthwhile they felt, the Telegraph reported.
The ONS asked a group of more than 15,000 people to rate how satisfied they felt overall on a scale of 0 to 10 as well as asking them how worthwhile they felt their lives were.
Almost 81 per cent of people with A-levels or equivalent qualifications were very satisfied - meaning that they rated their happiness levels at seven or above.
But among those in the next educational group down - who had NVQ Level two qualifications or equivalent - the levels fell to 74 per cent.
Among trade apprentices it fell to 67 per cent and only 64 per cent of those with no qualifications were very satisfied.
Almost 85 per cent of those with A-levels reported higher levels of self-worth compared with only 62 per cent of those with no qualifications.
"[This] suggests that adults aged 16 and over with higher levels of qualifications are more likely to report having medium or high satisfaction with their lives overall and also to report finding the things they do in their lives to be more worthwhile," the ONS said.
"It must be remembered that there are also other variables which may affect these results, such as age, income, type of employment, employment status and the individual's health," it added. (ANI)
