At age 25-31 most British people say they are in their prime, and the fewest say their peak wellbeing is before or behind them
A new YouGov survey looks at a deceptively simple question: what age is the best age to be? While you might expect a straightforward response – younger is usually better – the results paint a more promising picture for those reaching the tail-ends of their twenties.
Throughout the 25-31 and 32-39 age-ranges, the highest proportion say they are in their prime in terms of their overall level of wellbeing (58% and 57% respectively).
The 25-31 group are comparatively better off, however, as fewer (13%) say they are past their prime than do 32-39 year-olds (23%).
