According to the survey, 91 percent of Jewish respondents and 82 percent of Arab respondents were satisfied or very satisfied with their lives. The categories used to measure satisfaction were employment quality, personal security, health care, housing, education and skills, personal and social welfare, the environment, civic involvement, and material wealth.

The number of Israelis who were satisfied with their employment rose from 81.5 percent in 2002 to 88.4 percent in 2015. Seventy-one percent of respondents were satisfied with the health care they have received, with 15 percent calling it “very good” and 56 percent deeming it “good.”
