Top 10 Happiest Countries in the World

Date:

With the world filled with negativity, one needs to find happiness. And happiness is a difficult thing to measure and the UN finds it hard to determine the happiness of a country.

Every year, the U.N. Sustainable Development Solutions Network publishes its World Happiness Report—a study that examines the connections between happiness and development.

Around 1,000 people in each U.N. member state rate their quality of life on a scale of 0 to 10, while researchers extract data from six areas: GDP per capita, life expectancy, social support, trust, and corruption, perceived freedom to make life decisions, and generosity.

And every year the World Happiness Report comes in and we will get to know which are all some of the world’s happiest countries. Here is the list of the World’s Happiest Countries.

10) Luxembourg
