President at Mexican Society for Quality of Life Studies
The Mexican Society for Quality of Life Studies (SMECV) analyzed data recently released by the Mexican Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI). This information came from the self-reported wellbeing modules (BIARE), part of the 2016 National Survey on Consumer Confidence (ENCO).
The main finding is the decrease in the life satisfaction rate among Mexicans, scored on 8.0 in January 2016. This is two tenths below the same month of 2015, remaining unchanged from July of that year.
These data came from a measurement on a scale of 0 to 10, in adult population of 2,336 households in 32 cities, considering perceptions on three aspects:
Overall life satisfaction and fulfillment on particular aspects; Statements relating to mental strength and sense of life; and Emotional balance, which explores moods in population under study.
The recent survey confirms that highest level of life satisfaction among Mexicans may be found on personal relationships (8.6), while aspects that go beyond the private sphere, such as country and public safety, rated the lowest, 6.6 and 5.4, respectively.
The Mexican Society for Quality of Life Studies identified two specific domains showing better performance. These domains are free time and occupation.
In contrast, other aspects such as life achievements, personal relationships, housing, neighborhood, living standards, public safety, city and country retreat. Country was the aspect with the largest decrease (three tenths). Remaining domains (health and future predictions) persist unchanged.
To conclude, the Mexican Society for Quality of Life Studies notes that, in an overall balance, 96% of Mexicans have a predominantly positive mood in the observed period.
