    Kiwis satisfied with life in New Zealand
    1:54PM Thursday Oct 29, 2009

    The vast majority of New Zealanders are happy with their lives, according to a new survey.

    The first New Zealand General Social Survey (NZGSS), conducted by Statistics New Zealand, found that 86 per cent of those questioned were content with most aspects of their lives, including their health, environment, and social contact with family and friends.

    The survey canvassed traditional measures such as income, employment, and education, along with fields where little information has been available, such as volunteering, emergency preparedness, and housing problems.

    New Zealand has made it into the top 10 of a list of the world's most successful countries, according to a global survey of wealth and happiness.

    New Zealand ranks 10th in a "prosperity index" of 104 nations covering 90 per cent of the world's population released last week by London-based free market think-tank the Legatum Institute. Finland takes the top spot, while Australia ranks sixth.

    Unsurprisingly, Zimbabwe is at the bottom.

    The survey brings together data on economic growth with ratings for democracy, social provision, happiness and quality of life.
