Most people here are happy: NTUC poll
A Happiness Poll of nearly 6,000 people (5,720) by labour movement NTUC's family development unit, U Family shows - that 6 in 10 are happy.
And of this group, most were married, women or held part-time jobs.
6 in 10 of respondents said they are happier after getting married.
The number is bumped up to about 8 in 10 (77%) who said they are happier after becoming parents.
But the survey also found gaping holes in worklife balance.
Only about 3 in 10 say their employers are supportive of Flexible Work Arrangements.
While only about 4 in 10 (37%) say they have colleagues who will be supportive if there's a need.
About half say they spend insufficient time with their families.
While only about 1 in 5 (21%) say they actually have time for themselves after fulfilling their commitments.
On what will make them happier, about 3 in 10 respondents said they need financial stability and worklife balance.
The NTUC said moving forward, it will engage various stakeholders to promote worklife balance.
For example, it will discuss with the government on introducing childcare leave for single, unmarried parents and get companies to set up action plans to support worklife harmony.
The survey was conducted in November last year.
