This Is The Happiest Place To Live In The UK (And The Most Miserable)

If you’re on the quest for happiness you might want to move to leafy Rushmoor in Hampshire, which has been found to have the happiest residents in the UK.

People in the borough, which spans the towns of Aldershot and Farnborough, reported higher levels of happiness than those in any other area, rating their happiness levels as 8.3 out of 10, according to the latest data from the Office of National Statistics. 

One reason why Rushmoor may be the happiest place in the UK could be because of its life expectancy – even though it does not top the charts. Baby girls born today in the Rushmoor area can expect to live until they are 83.4 years old, compared with England’s average of 83.1. 

At the other end of the scale, people living in the district of Fenland in north Cambridgeshire came out bottom when asked by how happy they felt the previous day – rating their own happiness at just 6.7 out of 10.

Silvia Manclossi, head of Quality of Life Team at the Office for National Statistics, which conducted the survey, said: “For the first time, we have identified how factors such as health, access to services and crime levels may affect how people rate their well-being. 

The researchers warn conclusions from the data should be “made with caution” though, because discrepancies such as different sample sizes in different areas may have skewed some results.

The Office for National Statistics survey data, compiled between April 2017 and March 2018, show a new area is top of the happiness charts

“This can help local authorities and other organisations to better understand where services could be targeted to help to improve the well-being of people in their area.”
