It’s official! Money can buy you happiness

London : A new research has claimed that money can ensure happiness, reports ANI. The report on well-being has found that richer people rate their life satisfaction higher than those on lower incomes, which suggests that money can indeed ensure happiness, the Daily Express reported.

According to the Office for National Statistics which surveyed 8,000 adults, poorest 20 per cent of UK households saw life satisfaction at 6.9 on a scale of 0 to 10, while the richest rated theirs at an average of 7.77 and the more money people received from the state, such as housing benefit or jobseeker’s allowance, the more anxious and unhappy they were.

The survey also found that the impact of unemployment or sickness appeared to be felt more by men than women.
