    Disappointed by the state of the U.S. job market? Well, take heart.

    A handful of countries, such as the United Arab Emirates, Qatar or Bahrain, are home to more “good” jobs, but, according to a major new Gallup survey of nearly a half-million adults around the world, the United States job market has a larger share of “great” jobs than all but one other country. It is second to only Panama and is tied with Uzbekistan and Russia.

    But what makes a job “good” or “great?” Gallup’s definition is simple. A good job is one that includes at least 30 hours of consistent weekly work and a paycheck from an employer — in other words, a full-time job. Based on that definition, an estimated 1.3 billion of the world’s 5 billion adults have good jobs, according to Gallup.

    But having a job is one thing. Enjoying it is another altogether. Based on a series of additional questions, Gallup found that 14 percent of the adults with good jobs also felt engaged at work. Those full-time workers who also enjoyed what they do are the ones with great jobs, according to Gallup.
