Pembrokeshire ranked 5th happiest place in Wales

A NEW study has revealed that Pembrokeshire is ranked 5th on a list of the happiest places to live in Wales.

It ranks behind only Vale of Glamorgan, Anglesey, Powys and Wrexham.

The rankings were based on four questions about personal well-being, which were:

  • Overall, how satisfied are you with your life nowadays?
  • Overall, to what extent do you feel the things you do in your life are worthwhile?
  • Overall, how happy did you feel yesterday?
  • Overall, how anxious did you feel yesterday?

The survey asked people to answer on a 10 point scale, with 0 being ‘not at all’ and 10 being ‘completely’.
