Why Do Young Singaporeans Report Lower Quality of Life?

Young Singaporeans under 30 have reported a lower quality of life compared to those over 60, potentially due to challenges in achieving the “Singapore Dream” of affluence, which includes home and car ownership.

What Factors Contribute to Singapore’s Happiness Ranking?

Singapore’s happiness ranking considers several factors, including GDP per capita, healthy life expectancy, social support, freedom, generosity, and the perception of corruption.

How Does the Perception of Corruption in Singapore Compare Globally?

Singaporeans report a very low perception of corruption, ranking even lower than countries traditionally known for low corruption levels, such as Denmark or Norway.

What Is the Singapore Dream, and Why Is It Less Accessible Now?

The Singapore Dream refers to the aspiration for material success, signified by home and car ownership. It is perceived as less accessible now, especially to younger Singaporeans, due to socioeconomic changes.

Does the World Happiness Report Reflect the True State of Singapore’s Happiness?

There are debates among Singaporeans about the accuracy of the World Happiness Report’s reflection of their reality. The report is based on objective factors, but happiness is a subjective feeling that can vary widely between individuals.

What Is the Sociological Explanation for the Age Divide in Happiness in Singapore?

Sociologists suggest that the age divide in happiness may be due to the younger generation feeling that the economic progress and upward mobility experienced by their parents are now harder to achieve.

How Are Happiness and Quality of Life Measured in the World Happiness Report?

The World Happiness Report measures happiness and quality of life using surveys where respondents rate their life on a scale from 0 to 10, in addition to considering factors such as economic indicators and social support.

The data highlights a disparity in happiness between different age groups in Singapore, which raises important discussions on the societal expectations and pressures faced by the younger population.
