International Day of Happiness: Are Malaysians Happy with Their Life?

Ipsos has just released the following data – International Day of Happiness: Are Malaysians Happy with Their Life?

The findings from the study reveal:-

  • Malaysians feel happier over the years and now surpassed the global average happiness level.
  • Personal and familial relationship are highly valued and bring significant satisfaction to people’s life.
  • In contrast, people are less satisfied with the social-political and economic situation in their respective countries.

Atticus Poon, Research Manager, Public Affairs Ipsos mentions:-

“Malaysia has shown a steady increase in happiness level from 2020 to 2023, and surpassed the global level in 2024, indicating a significant improvement in overall happiness among Malaysians. However, countries like Japan and South Korea showed a lower level of happiness, an indication of a diverse range of happiness around the world.

Personal relationship, connection to nature, and education attainment are the top contributors to life happiness for many people. Malaysians, in particular,  derived more satisfaction from their familial relationship as compared to other countries.

While people around the world found that the economic and socio-political situations in their countries less satisfying, Malaysians are generally more satisfied than the global average.

As we celebrate the International Day of Happiness, it is crucial to remember to value and nurture the elements that contribute to our happiness. Every step towards happiness, no matter how small, is a step towards a brighter and more fulfilled world.”
