The quality of life in Spain will decrease slightly in 2022, according to the National Institute of Statistics (INE), which continues to teach Navarra as an autonomous community with the highest level, followed by La Rioja and Aragón. On the opposite side, the Canary Islands, Andalusia, and Galicia have the lowest.
The Multidimensional Quality of Life Indicator (IMCV), published this Tuesday by the INE, stood at 101.44 points last year compared to 101.64 in 2021. This reduction is caused by the dimensions of governance and basic rights, general life experience, leisure and social relations, physical and personal security, and environment and environment. On the contrary, those for work, health, education, and material living conditions improved their scores compared to last year.
The evolution of this indicator from 100 points in 2008 – the first year of statistics – to 101.83 in 2021, with 2009 as the year in which the lowest figure was reached (99.64) and 2019 with the highest score (102.02).
In this edition of IMCV, all dimensions are updated, as the 2022 Living Conditions Survey includes additional health and quality of life modules.
