Happiness index

The essence of governance is make life better for the people…to make them happy.

Yes, the province of Pangasinan has been named as haven for statistics in Region 1 as it was elevated to the Hall of Fame for its National Statistics Month celebrations.

For official statisticians to be relevant to all stakeholders and for statistics to be useful to society, national statistical systems should generate statistics to monitor not only the usual concerns of society but also the happiness of the people.

Senator Juan Ponce Enrile said it right ‘Gusto ko happy ka!’

How would you answer if asked the question: Taking all things together under the Espino Administration, would you say you are? and your choices are a) very happy, b) quite happy, c) not very happy, d) not at all happy

How would you answer if asked the question: How happy were you as you lived under the previous Administration? And your choices are a) very happy, b) fairly happy, c) neither happy nor unhappy, d) fairly unhappy, and e) very unhappy

How would you answer if asked the question: Overall, how satisfied are you with your present life under the Espino Administration? And your choices are a) very satisfied, b) fairly satisfied, c) neither satisfied nor dissatisfied, d) fairly dissatisfied, e) very dissatisfied.

Measuring the progress of Pangasinan is important, regardless of the level of its development.

Increasing attention must be afforded to the need to measure genuine progress of Pangasinan.

Are the people of Pangasinan happy because they have a grand and beautiful capitol?

Are the people of Pangasinan happy because more of them have better earning opportunities and food on the table?

Are more really happy?

Just asking.
