People in their 20s and 30s are the least happy and most anxious among all age groups in South Korea, a survey showed Sunday, reflecting their deepening apprehension in the face of high youth unemployment. The Center for Happiness Studies at Seoul National University and KakaoTalk, the country’s mobile messaging service provider, unveiled the result of their joint survey.
In the combined Happiness Index, which gauges the level of satisfaction and apprehension, respondents in their 20s and 30s both recorded the lowest score of 52 on a scale of one to 100. Children under the age of 10 had the highest score of 70, followed by those aged 60 and older （61）, those in their 10s （59）, those in their 50s （58） and those in their 40s （54）.
By sex, men had an average score of 57, compared with women’s 54. "Those polled in their 40s and 50s have usually recorded the lowest scores in the happiness surveys. But this time the outcome was different," said Choi In-cheol, an SNU psychology professor.
