Younger Spaniards are on average more satisfied with their lives than older Spaniards, according to a Eurostat report released to mark International Day of Happiness yesterday. The survey showed that in Spain people become more miserable as they grow older, unlike Nordic countries where people tend to grow happier with age. Spaniards aged between 16 and 24 years old rated their satisfaction with their lives on average 7.4 out of 10 while the oldest demographic surveyed, those over 75 years old, rated their lives on average 6.4.
