A recent survey by Gallup found that married U.S. adults, those making $100,000 or more annually, and individuals who attend religious services weekly reported the highest satisfaction with their personal lives.

Americans making over $100,000 showed the highest “very satisfied” rate at 58%, compared to lower income brackets.

The survey also highlighted differences in satisfaction based on marital status, religious service attendance, education level, political affiliation, and age group.

“Majorities of Americans across all key demographic subgroups are at least somewhat satisfied with their lives, but only a few groups have majorities saying they are very satisfied,” the report stated. “This includes those with annual household incomes of $100,000 or more, married adults, those who attend religious services regularly, college graduates, Democrats and those aged 55 and older.”

Less than half of Americans (47%) reported being “very satisfied” with their personal lives, with economic uncertainty being a key factor influencing satisfaction levels.

“The previous low points in Americans’ personal satisfaction have occurred at times of economic uncertainty,” the report said. “The 46 percent reading in 2011 came when the country was still recovering from the 2007-2009 recession, and the other sub-50 percent reading (47 percent) was in December 2008 during the global economic crisis.”

“The current data are from Gallup’s Jan. 2-22, 2024, Mood of the Nation poll that also finds Americans’ views of the national economy are largely negative,” the report added.
