U.S. subgroup that rates its standard of living highest: 18-29 year olds

Although standard of living evaluations have improved in recent years, the groups ranking among the most and least positive have been remarkably consistent. Younger and upper-socioeconomic status Americans have ranked as the most positive groups since 2008, with all these groups’ scores rising over the past four years. The one exception is Republicans, who ranked in the top five in 2008, but have not been among the highest groups since.
