Poll: Teachers Love Their Job

PRINCETON, N.J., (UPI) — Teachers in the United States rate their lives better than all other occupations except physicians, a Gallup poll released Thursday indicated.

However, the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index results indicate that teachers rank their work environment eighth of 14 occupation types.

Teachers have an average Life Evaluation Index score of 68.8, ahead of workers in most other types of jobs, including managers and executives, nurses and business owners, Gallup said.

Other than work environment, teachers scored higher than almost all occupational groups on in a number of areas, including emotional health, healthy behaviors, basic access and physical health, the Princeton, N.J., polling agency said.

Teachers also reported high levels of stress, second only to physicians, with 47 percent saying they experience stress daily, Gallup said.

Results are based on nationwide telephone interviews conducted as part of the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index survey with a random sample of 172,286 workers from Jan. 2-Dec. 30, 2012. The margin of error is 3.5 percentage points for the smallest sample group (physicians) and less than 1 percentage point for larger groups such as professionals, service workers or managers/executives
