more >>


Migrating to the Mediterranean in search of a better lifestyle makes people unhappier than if they stayed at home, the British Sociological Associations annual conference in Leeds heard today [Wednesday 23 April].

Dr David Bartram, of the University of Leicesters Department of Sociology, said that migrants from the UK and five other northern European countries who went to Spain, Portugal, Greece and Cyprus were less happy than people who stayed behind.

Dr Bartram analysed survey data on 265 migrants from Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands, France and 73 from the UK who resettled in the Mediterranean countries.

When asked how happy they were on a scale of 0-10, the migrants scored 7.3 on average, compared with the average of 7.5 for 56,000 people studied who remained in the northern countries.
