How’s Life? Residents Split On Whether Life Has Improved In Past Decade

lifeNew Jerseyans are divided as to whether the first decade of the 21st century has brought them a better quality of life. That’s the finding of a Monmouth University/Gannett New Jersey poll released today. Thirty percent of Garden State residents said things have gotten better for them over the past 10 years. Thirty-four percent say they’ve gotten worse, and 31 percent say their quality of life is about the same as it was in 2000. Young adults were the most likely to say the new century treated them well. The oldest New Jerseyans — age 70 and up — were most likely to say their quality of life has declined.

The telephone poll was conducted with 1,753 New Jersey adults from Oct. 28-30 and has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 2.4 percentage points. AP
