According to the survey, 54 percent of Lithuanians said they were happy at the end of 2016, while the indicator in Estonia was 53 percent and in Latvia 49 percent. Meanwhile, the global index showed late last year that 59 percent of world residents were happy.

Meanwhile, Baltic residents were more pessimistic about economy in late 2016. The index of economic expectations stood at 16 percent in Lithuania, 34 percent in Latvia and 15 percent in Estonia, as compared with the global index of 20 percent.

During the survey, Win/Gallup International and Baltic Market Insights interviewed 66,600 persons in 66 countries in late 2016, i.e., 500 residents in each Baltic country.
