Report Hopebarometer 2018

In January 2018, the Hopebarometer was used to study how hopeful Dutch citizens feel. On average, people scored a 6.1 on the multidimensional hope-index. The theme of this edition was ‘Trust in the future’ and focused on trust and expectations. Results showed that people are optimistic about their personal life and the economy, but pessimistic about other societal developments in for example education, healthcare and safety.
