Supplementary notes

* The original question was formulated by the source as follows: "Does or could [the source] give me greatest happiness, does or could give me some happiness, doesn't or couldn't make me happy or happier, does not apply to me?" The presented figures represent 11 sources of happiness with the highest share of respondents choosing answers "greatest happiness" or "some happiness."

According to the source, the population sample in Russia is "more urban, more educated and/or more affluent than the general population and the results should be viewed as reflecting the views of a more “connected” population."
Bayesian Credibility Interval was set at +/-4.8 points.
