Overall trend of well-being from the year 2003 until today shows increase between 2003 and 2007, with sharp decrease in 2008 (when the economic crisis started) which continued until 2014 when we can observe again slight increase in the following years. These trends in subjective well-being can be linked partly to the objective circumstances (economic crisis) but also to perceived quality of society. Between the years 2008 and 2014 the general trust in public as well as political institutions was among the lowest in Europe. Croatian citizens expressed especially low levels of trust in justice (legal institutions), the national parliament, the government and the press. Average rates of trust in institutions, at both individual and country level, was found to be strongly associated with the perception of corruption, which was high at those years. However, as the economic crisis ended we can observe increase in both objective and subjective indices of quality of life. Economic indicators for the country are improving in past two-three years and along with it also life satisfaction and happiness of Croatian citizens. According to the data of the largest project on subjective well-being in Croatia (CRO-WELL: Croatian longitudinal survey of well-being ; conducted by the Ivo Pilar Institute of Social Sciences and financed by the Croatian Science Foundation) the life satisfaction and happiness of Croatian citizens nowadays is relatively high, about point 7 on the scale 0 to 10, where 0 means the lowest and 10 means the highest possible life satisfaction and/or happiness.
