A report was released on Wednesday

Results from a national survey into the population’s wellbeing revealed Dartford and Gravesham to be above the national average for happiness.

Both districts were also found to find their lives more worthwhile than most of the nation.

The survey asked four questions to try and estimate national wellbeing across:

1.Overall, how satisfied are you with your life nowadays?

2.Overall, to what extent do you feel the things you do in your life are worthwhile?

3.Overall, how happy did you feel yesterday?

4.Overall, how anxious did you feel yesterday?

On the scores, Dartford and Gravesham both had lower than average life satisfaction, but were found to be quite a way below the national average score for anxiety.

The survey was published on Wednesday by the Office for National Statistics.
