State of the Global Workplace | Appendix 1 Gallup is entirely responsible for the management, design and control of the Gallup World Poll. For the past 80 years, Gallup has been committed to the principle that accurately collecting and disseminating the opinions and aspirations of people around the globe is vital to understanding our world. Gallup provides information in an objective, reliable and scientifically grounded manner. Gallup is not associated with any political orientation, party or advocacy group and does not accept partisan entities as clients. Any individual, institution or governmental agency may access the Gallup World Poll regardless of nationality. The identities of clients and all surveyed respondents will remain confidential. Life Evaluation Index The Life Evaluation Index included among the standard set of core questions on the Gallup World Poll measures respondents’ perceptions of where they stand now and in the future. Building on the Cantril Self-Anchoring Striving Scale, 1 Gallup measures life satisfaction by asking respondents to place the status of their lives on a “ladder” scale with steps numbered from zero to 10, where zero indicates the worst possible life and 10 the best possible life. Individuals who rate their current lives a “7” or higher AND their future an “8” or higher are “thriving.” Individuals are “suffering” if they report their current AND future lives as a “4” and lower. All other individuals are “struggling.” Please imagine a ladder, with steps numbered from zero at the bottom to 10 at the top. The top of the ladder represents the best possible life for you and the bottom of the ladder represents the worst possible life for you. On which step of the ladder would you say you personally feel you stand at this time? Please imagine a ladder, with steps numbered from zero at the bottom to 10 at the top. The top of the ladder represents the best possible life for you and the bottom of the ladder represents the worst possible life for you. Just your best guess, on which step do you think you will stand in the future, say about five years from now? 1 Cantril, H. (1965). The pattern of human concerns.
