Residents of Lithuania are happier than Latvians and Estonians, however, all in all, people of all three Baltic states are not as happy as the world population, shows a World Barometer published by Win/Gallup International and Baltic Market Insights, writes LETA/BNS.

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

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

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.
