How satisfied are we? - Paul Spoonley

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:20 pm on 26 May 2015

It seems that overall New Zealanders are a pretty satisfied lot. Earlier today Statistics New Zealand released its latest general social survey - a snapshot of how New Zealanders feel about their lives. It's a survey carried out every two years among 9,000 people. Just over 8 in 10 people reported high levels of life satisfaction and almost 9 out of 10 felt a sense of purpose in what they did. Paul Spoonley, Pro Vice-Chancellor - College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Massey University talks about how that satisfaction varies throughout the country.
