Typical text

All things considered, how satisfied or dissatisfied are you with your life as-a-whole these days?
10  very satisfied
0  not satisfied
Missing cases of average life-satisfaction in nations estimated on the basis of a combination of observed components of happiness in that nation:
1) Afffective component, measured using responses to multiple questions about yesterday's affective experience, from which an affect balance score was computed
2) Cognitive component, measured using responses to single question on Best-Worst possible life
Computation explained in EHERO Working Paper 2021-3 How to complete the ranklist of happiness in nations
