Hungarians unhappiest among OECD nations
Hungarians are the least satisfied with their living circumstances according to a study released by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. On a scale of 1 to 10, Hungarians ranked themselves at 4.7, while the second worst position went to Portugal with 5 points.
Switzerland took the top spot with 7.8.
Despite the glumness, the perception survey showed far better results in other areas, such as job security. Here, Hungary is among the top 10 in the surveyed countries though not among the nations where respondents say they are systematically overworked.
