Abstract

嶺南大學公共政策研究中心進行的「香港快樂指數調查」結果顯示,香港人於2015年的快樂指數為70.0(以0-100分計算),稍低於去年的70.5。較為意外的結果是30歲以下受訪者的快樂指數,由67.8回升至69.3。

儘管受訪者對媒體的評價仍處於低水平,但評分由去年的4.76微升至4.89。市民對公共政策質素的滿意度為4.37(以0-10分計算),與去年的4.34相比變化不大;市民對香港生活環境的滿意度,由去年的5.95顯著下跌至今年的5.69;對公共醫療的滿意度,則由去年的6.49下跌至今年的6.30。評分處於6或以上者屬於良好或以上。

家庭月入介乎一萬至二萬元之間的人士的快樂指數,比去年明顯上升7%至6.82;而家庭月入一萬元以下人士亦上升了3%。結果可能反映今年較早時候法定最低工資的提高。家庭月入二萬至三萬元人士的快樂指數則下跌了4.7%。

According to the results of the Hong Kong Happiness Index Survey conducted by Lingnan University’s Centre for Public Policy Studies, the Happiness Index for Hong Kong people in 2015 stands at 70.0 (on a scale of 0 to 100), which is slightly lower than last year’s 70.5. Surprisingly, the Happiness Index of people aged below 30 rose from 67.8 to 69.3.

Respondents’ degree of satisfaction with the media rose slightly to 4.89 from last year’s 4.76, albeit still at a low level. Satisfaction with Hong Kong’s public policy is 4.37 (on a scale of 0 to 10), with not much difference from last year’s 4.34. Satisfaction with the living environment dropped noticeably to 5.69 from last year’s 5.95, while that with public healthcare decreased to 6.30 from last year’s 6.49. A rating at 6 or above can be considered as good or better.

The Happiness Index of those with a monthly household income between $10,000 and $20,000 showed a significant rise of 7% from last year’s level to 6.82, while those with income below $10,000 rose by 3%. These increments probably reflect the increase in the statutory minimum wage rate earlier this year. The Happiness Index of those with family income from $20,000 to $30,000 fell by 4.7%.
