Summary of request

Data was requested on average levels of anxiety and life satisfaction for people living in certain types of households during the coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown period, as well as a baseline period prior to the pandemic.

Please note that these tables may not be suitable for all analytical purposes as they were produced in response to a user request. It is possible that a revision could occur, so please use the contact details to discuss.

Estimates are presented for calendar year 2018 from the Annual Population Survey, covering the whole of the UK, while for the period 3 April to 10 May 2020, five pooled samples of the Opinions and Lifestyle Survey were used, covering Great Britain.

Caution should be used in comparing average values as the mode of collection differs, as well as the structure of the survey and the sample, which is why shares of the population falling into different thresholds are also presented. These are:

  • low, medium, high and very high life satisfaction

  • very low, low, medium, and high anxiety.

Please note

This request was updated on 10 June 2020 to include additional data.
