Lingnan University’s Centre for Public Policy Studies (CPPS) today announced survey findings of the “Hong Kong Happiness Index 2010”. According to the survey, Hong Kong people in 2010 continue to enjoy high levels of happiness similar to what they enjoyed in the previous year, with the overall happiness index at 70.1, not much different from the 2009 level of 70.6 and well above the trough of 67.2 seen in 2007.

The survey was conducted by CPPS from Oct 18 to Oct 22 2010 via randomized phone calls. The research team successfully interviewed 834 Hong Kong residents aged 21 or above. On a scale of 0 to 100, an index above 50 suggests that people are happy and an index below 50 indicates unhappiness.

香港人的快樂指 數在2010 年持續高企,達70.1 分,與去年的70.6 相若,較2007 年的低位67.2 分仍然高 出很多。

是次調查由研究中心於 2010 年 10 月18 至22 日以電話隨機抽樣方式進行,成功訪問 了 834 名年齡 21 歲或以上的香港居民。調查以零至 100 分作指標, 50 分以上表示 「快樂」; 50 分以下表示「不快樂」。
