93% UAE residents proud to live in country: Survey
92% residents say they feel safe walking alone at night.
Over 93 per cent of UAE residents are proud to live in the country, a survey of both Emiratis and expats has revealed. About 92 per cent said they feel safe walking alone at night and 82 per cent are happy with government services.
The National Happiness and Wellbeing Survey targetted 10,000 people aged 15 and over. About 84 per cent respondents indicated that they are comfortable with their family relationships and 88 per cent have good communication skills.
Eight in 10 people believe they are living a meaningful life, and 84 per cent of the country's population are generally optimistic.
The Ministry of Community Development had launched the survey in February 2020. It featured responses from students, senior citizens, people of determination, retirees, unemployed citizens, housewives and working women.
Hessa Essa Buhumaid, Minister of Community Development, said the survey was aimed at measuring the wellbeing standards of the UAE community in seven vital sectors: Community, healthcare, education, economy, security-justice and safety, infrastructure-housing and environment, and human resources.
