One-third of Indians rate their lives as 'suffering'

NEW DELHI (AP) - Nearly a third of Indians view their lives poorly enough to be classified as suffering, and the rate increased among all income and education levels, a survey found. The poorest and least educated Indians were the most likely to be suffering, according to the Gallup survey released on Monday. Gallup classified respondents as thriving, struggling or suffering according to how they rated their current and future lives. Income, education, and employment were the key factors affecting people's well-being, said the survey first taken in 2006. The 2012 survey rated 31 per cent of the respondents as suffering. Among the poorest 40 per cent, 38 per cent were suffering. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. blog comments powered by Disqus
