Happiness Index in Russia's largest cities

A recent study comparing the quality of life enjoyed by people living in different parts of Russia finds life in the regions more fulfilling.

Almost 27,000 people from Russia’s 100 largest cities were asked how satisfied they were with their financial status, the local environment, the pace of development and their overall standard of living. Lastly, they were asked: “Are you happy in your city?” A joint study conducted by the NewsEffector monitoring agency and the Russian Regions’ Regional Research Fund found that when it comes to places that people love living in, Moscow is ranked way down at number 52 on the happiness index, while top position on the list is taken by the Chechen capital, Grozny.
