Designed by Prof. Ho, the survey has been sponsored by the Shih Wing Ching Foundation. This year’s survey was conducted by the Public Opinion and Polling Centre of Chu Hai College via randomized telephone dialling, complemented by an on-line survey. a Total of 772 Hong Kongers responded. The results were covered by about 30 media in and out of Hong Kong.
The Index rebounded from 67.6 to 69.7, led by greater satisfaction with the administration of public policy. However, satisfaction for publicly provided healthcare has plummeted to a new low of 5.88.
The rating by young people below the age of 30 for public policy rebounded strongly from 3.31 to 4.21. Their happiness also rose noticeably, but they continue to score very low in purposive living and not worrying about things beyond their control, at 6.48 and 5.58 respectively.
Hong Kong people’s rating for the media continues to climb for the third year, and now stands at 5.08, on a scale of 0 to 10.
