自分の幸福度

Happy Planet Indexで、自分のハッピー度を量ってみた。このサイトはイギリスのシンクタンク、new economics foundation(nef)によるもので、世界178の国や地域を平均寿命や生活満足度などで分類したハッピー度ランキングを公開している。日本は178カ国中95位。平均値は41.7。経済的に豊かな国ほどランキングが低い傾向があるらしい。

以下は私の結果。
予想通り結構ハッピー度高かった。マクロビ食生活も長生きに効果的のよう!

Your personal Happy Planet Index (HPI) is 86.9, which is above that for any country, including top-placed Vanuatu, and is even above the reasonable ideal we have set, of 83. Congratulations! You are achieving on a personal level what needs to be achieved at the national one. Your score is above that of your country, 41.7.

Below is a breakdown of the various components that make up your HPI score.

You: 86.9
Average: 41.7

Life Expectancy
Hurray! Your life expectancy is well above average for your gender and country. Probably, you're doing all the major things right - eating well, not smoking, getting regular exercise, and you're lucky enough to have the right genes. Are there any more ways you could make a difference? Some factors that improve your life expectancy are more surprising than others. For example, giving up your car, avoiding living alone, moving out of the city and shrugging off stress.

You: 99.5
Average: 79.6

Ecological Footprint
Your ecological footprint is 2.11 global hectares, or 1.17 planets. This is equivalent to the average in countries such as Costa Rica, Iran or Brazil.

Your ecological footprint is less than half the average for the country you live in.

You are using between one and one and a half times your share of the planet's resources (assuming no resources are put aside for other species). This is below average for industrialised countries, typical instead of people in many middle income countries such as Jamaica. The world average is 2.2 g ha. For those living in industrialised countries: you are probably already aware of your resource use, and act considerately. Knocking those last few deci-hectares of your footprint is, we know, very tricky. For people in the west, the most effective steps to take include the following:

Park away your car for when you absolutely need it. Why not climb onto your bike, or the bus? 2-wheels good, 4-wheels bad (unless they're big, bus wheels, of course!)
Cut down on meat. Depending on the animal you're eating and what it's been fed, it could be taking up to 16 pounds of crop feed from the fields to get 1 pound of meat into the supermarket. Of course, meat is not the only issue at hand. If your protein-rich vegan diet is being imported from the other side of the world, that's not too good for your footprint either.
Perhaps the most guaranteed, but also most painful, way to reduce your footprint is to cut down on flights. For example, flying from London to Athens and back adds 0.77 g ha to your footprint - more than people in many countries use over an entire year.


You: 2.11
Average: 5.51

Life Satisfaction
You reported a life satisfaction of 8. This is the most common response across UK and indeed all of Europe. However, it is above average, so we are happy that you are so happy. Only in two countries is the mean life satisfaction higher - Switzerland and Denmark.

You: 8
Average: 6.72

Well-being
The new economics foundation (nef) recognises that there's more to life than feeling good, which is why our model for well-being is based on four domains ・personal feelings, personal functionings, social feelings and social functionings. 'Feelings' refers to your attitude to the way you, your future and society are. 'Functionings' looks at whether you have the opportunities to do the things that bring you well-being. Like with life satisfaction, a score of 5 is theoretically the middle score, but, given the way most people respond to surveys, is below average.

Personal Feelings
In this online questionnaire, personal feelings are assessed with two questions ・one testing your optimism and one testing your self-esteem.

You are optimistic about the future and probably also about yourself.

You: 6.55
Average: 6.04
[Average is of all online responses to this survey - not the average for your country]

Personal Functionings
In this online questionnaire personal functionings are assessed with five questions ・two evaluating your subjective opinion on your health and how activity you are, the other three testing you for feelings of autonomy, purpose and worth.

You are healthy and overall feel autonomous, purposeful and able to demonstrate your abilities to others.

You: 6.97
Average: 6.14
[Average is of all online responses to this survey - not the average for your country]

Social Feelings
In this online questionnaire social feelings are assessed with four questions ・three assessing your opinion of your community, whilst the last looks at personal relationships.

You have a strong sense of trust and belonging in your community and a happy personal life.

You: 5.55
Average: 5.66

Social Functionings
In this online questionnaire social functionings are assessed with four questions ・two assessing your job / studies, one your free time, and one your community participation. If you did not respond to the work / study questions, your score is judged purely on the other two aspects.

You are satisfied with your job / course - it is interesting, and only occasionally stressful. Further it normally leaves you enough time to do the things you want to do.

You: 5.81
Average: 5.57
