English title: Democracy and satisfaction with life
Author(s): Mare Ainsaar -
Type: Report, working paper
In countries where the satisfaction with democracy is higher, people tend to be more satisfied with life in general. In terms of both satisfaction with life and democracy, Estonia together with many other new democracies are rather placed in the lower end of European countries. In Estonia, too, satisfaction with life is strongly correlated with satisfaction with democracy. Both indicators are influenced by similar developments in the society, thus both notably worsened as a result of recent economic crisis.
