Abstract

In this paper we discuss the subjective feelings of well-being. More specifically, we research the relationship between life satisfaction and happiness on the one and and age, family income, education, social networks, social trust and the feeling of security on the other. As significant findings of the fourth round of ESS, we indicate the following: Greek people are not so satisfied with their lives. Young people, as well as those who lead a stable familial life, participate in social networks that fulfill their emotional needs, depend on an income that allows them to respond to their obligations, those who are educated and have a job, have a higher level of well being. On the other hand, people who are happy and satisfied with their lives are trusting other people and feel more secure.
