Survey to ask 'How happy are you?'

UK households are to be asked how satisfied they are with their lives in survey measuring happiness.

The Office for National Statistics has published questions it is adding to an existing nationwide poll from April.

The ONS says the aim is to get a fuller picture of "how society is doing" than can be found simply by using economic indicators such as GDP.
