These scores are self-reported by survey respondents on an 11-point scale, from 0 to 10. “Low” personal wellbeing is defined as those who report a score of 0-4 on life satisfaction, feeling that the things done in life are worthwhile, or happiness, or a score of 6-10 on anxiety.</li><li>Personal well-being scores are reported by respondents at the time of interview, including how happy or anxious they were “yesterday”, so the respondents identified in this analysis do not necessarily “suffer from” low personal well-being over an extended period.</li><li>Differences in proportions do not necessarily imply a direct causal relationship.</li><li>People with long-term health conditions are defined as those who report any physical or mental health conditions or illnesses lasting or expecting to last 12 months or more.</li><li>Disabled people are defined as those who report a long-term health condition that reduces their ability to carry out day-to-day activities. This is the Government Statistical Service (GSS) Harmonised Principle, in line with the Equality Act 2010.</li></ol>
