Young people have a mixed view of their current situation and their future. The K&H Youth Index stood at only +2 points in the fourth quarter, one of the worst results in the survey's eight-year history. Only 32% of young people said they were satisfied with their life now now, but 60% were optimistic about the future.

According to the research, the young people surveyed can be divided into several distinct groups.

The group of "dissatisfied optimists" is the most numerous, at 37% of respondents. Although they do not consider themselves satisfied now, they expect this situation to change for the better.

Just over 30% make up the "dissatisfied pessimists", who are dissatisfied with their current situation and do not expect it to improve in the future.

The third group is the "satisfied pessimists": 5% are satisfied with their current situation but expect it to get worse in the future.

This year's Q4 results show that 28% of the surveyed are "satisfied optimists": they are the most optimistic, satisfied with their current situation without expecting it to get worse.

The K&H Youth Index measures young people's satisfaction with life, health, education, work, financial situation, self-fulfillment, autonomy, entertainment, and friends, based on several components, K&H said.
