Gallup’s Positive and Negative Experience Indexes measure life’s intangibles — feelings and emotions
— that traditional economic indicators such as GDP were never intended to capture. Each index provides a real-time snapshot of people’s daily experiences, offering leaders insights into the health of their societies that they cannot gather from economic measures alone.
The 2020 Global Emotions Report presents the results from Gallup’s latest measurements of people’s
positive and negative daily experiences based on more than 175,000 interviews with adults in more than
140 countries and areas in 2019.
