Asked about present emotions in the Graduate Outcomes survey, graduates surveyed on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays were more likely to say that they had been happy the day before.

For the first time, researchers have used a UK based study to show how responses to questions about different measures of wellbeing are linked to the day of the week when the questions are asked. HESA researchers found that positive responses to questions about graduates’ current levels of happiness were more likely to be associated with answering at the weekend than positive responses to questions about how worthwhile or satisfying they find their lives.
