Students more satisfied as lockdown restrictions ease

But experimental statistics also suggest students still feel lonelier than other adults

Experimental data released on 7 April reveal that average life satisfaction scores among students in England grew to 5.2 out of 10 in a survey carried out between 12 and 22 March—the same level seen in November 2020. It represents an increase from 4.6 in January and 4.9 in February this year, when parts of the UK were in lockdown.
