Gallup is using another indicator to measure people's well-being since gdp is highly misleading. For many more countries see: Gallup's results showing countries around the world in their poll from 2005 - 2009.
Gallup's poll grouped the countries according to regions.
In Asia Pacific region, S'pore scored around the same as Thailand-> S'pore's ministers are way overpaid to deliver such 'fantastic' results. Oh by the way where is Turkmenistan on the map? Let me look it up & improve my geography......
Since S'pore's ministers are way overpaid & claim they are world-class, let's see how S'pore measures against other 1st world nations.
European countries with 50%+ Thriving. Oh gosh look at Norway with 0% suffering!!! Nordic countries are tops! Even Switzerland which WAS S'pore's role model is already 3 times more thriving population than sinkies.
Americas countries with 50%+ Thriving:
S'pore is more like these 3 African countries. How come 75% of sinkies are struggling, 6% suffering like these africans despite what the govt controlled mainstream media likes to boast about gdp up up up?
Is now 2012. Poll results are aggregated from 2005-2009 so i reckon S'pore now has even more % struggling (me included) & suffering.
Instead of pegging their ministerial salaries to gdp growing like cancer, it ought to be pegged to sinkies' well being according to aggregated results of outside independent polls.
