The mid-life crisis is real, study suggests, as economist pinpoints age of peak misery at 47.2 


The mid-life crisis is real, study suggests, as economist pinpoints age of peak misery at 47.2 

This was based on the question: ‘Overall, how satisfied are you with your life nowadays? where nought is ‘not at all satisfied’ and 10 is ‘completely satisfied’.

He found that those aged in their 40s all gave an answer between an average of 7.70 and 7.90 – the lowest out of any age group. 

He added that the 2008 financial crisis – seen as a “shock” – triggered the rise of individualism against a backdrop of falling social connectivity. 

“This [average age of misery] could be linked to a breakdown in social relations that come with middle age such as marriages coming to an end, women having children out of wedlock… [suddenly] that social backup is not there anymore.”

He said that the same is true for community clubs, bowling clubs, unions, churches – even commuters do not stay to work in their hometowns.
