Fewer Americans say they’re happy than at any point since 1972
A new NORC poll drawing on trends from the long-running General Social Survey finds Americans are less likely to call themselves very happy than at any point since that survey began in 1972.
The nationwide poll was conducted from May 21 to 29, 2020 using AmeriSpeak — the probability-based panel of NORC at the University of Chicago. A total of 2,279 adults completed the survey either online or using landlines or cell phones. The margin of sampling error is +/- 2.9 percentage points.
