Average Nigerian happy, healthy but concerned at economy

12 August 2014, 18:07

Lagos - While locals are largely satisfied with their personal health, religious and social well-being, they remain unsatisfied with the economic situation.

This is according to a survey that NOIPolls, the prominent local think-tank conducted for the month of July.

According to the NOIPolls Health Index, 74 percent of Nigerians are mostly satisfied with their personal health.

The Social Interaction Index indicates that about 74 percent of Nigerians are mostly satisfied with their personal social interaction.

The Personal Religion Index suggests 88 percent are satisfied.

However, the Economy Index again experienced a decline of 1.2-points in July 2014 following a 3.3-points decline in June 2014.

“Nigerians have remained unsatisfied with their economic situation and this indicator has remained the lowest ranked over the 19 month period since polling commenced in January 2013,” NOIPolls stated.

Only 35 percent of the population is satisfied in that regard.

According to findings, the Personal Standard of Living Index (47 percent) indicated that Nigerians have remained neutral about their standard of living while as well as the personal security (49.27 percent) according to the Security Index.

The Personal Well Being Index Poll was conducted in the month of July 2014.

The PWBI involved telephone interviews of a random nationwide sample consisting of 1 000 randomly selected phone-owning Nigerians aged 18 years and above, representing the six geopolitical zones in the country, were interviewed.

“With a sample of this size, we can say with 95 percent confidence that the results obtained are statistically precise - within a range of plus or minus 3 percent.

NOIPolls works in technical partnership with the Gallup Organisation (USA), to conduct periodic opinion polls and studies on various socio-economic and political issues in Nigeria.
