Did you know that in 2015/16 Northern Ireland Continous Household Survey, the highest life satisfaction scores were recorded by the youngest (16-25 and 25-34) and oldest (65+) age groups? However, people aged 65+ had the lowest locus of control (which is the degree to which someone feels they have control over events that shape their lives.)
