The borough level data shows combined scores from 3 years of the survey, excluding 2009/10 when there was no happiness question in the survey. The combined score was calculated by totalling all valid repsonses across these three years. The base is the total number of valid responses over the whole period ('valid' excludes people who refused the question or answered 'dont know').
ANNUAL POPULATION SURVEY
