The UN just released the World Happiness Report 2018.
The World Happiness Report is a landmark survey of the state of global happiness, which ranks 156 countries by their happiness levels, and 117 countries by the happiness of their immigrants. The main focus of this year’s report, in addition to its usual ranking of the levels and changes in happiness around the world, is on migration within and between countries.
Nordic countries had high scores when it came to income, healthy life expectancy, social support, freedom, trust, and generosity.
Below you can already have a sneak peek at the ranking of the happiest countries:
- Finland 🇫🇮
- Norway 🇳🇴
- Denmark 🇩🇰
- Iceland 🇮🇸
- Switzerland 🇨🇭
- The Netherlands 🇳🇱
- Canada 🇨🇦
- New Zealand 🇳🇿
- Sweden 🇸🇪
- Australia 🇦🇺
The most striking finding of the whole report is that a ranking of countries according to the happiness of their immigrant populations is almost exactly the same as for the rest of the population.
