This indicator is about how worthwhile people think the things they do in life are, reflecting an individual’s sense of purpose. It shows the percentage of people aged 15 years and over who rated how worthwhile they felt the things they do are, at 7 or higher on a 0 to 10 scale. On this scale 0 is not at all worthwhile and 10 is completely worthwhile.
Where a person reported more than one ethnic group, they were counted in each applicable group.
