Top Happiest Countries In The World in 2023
We live in troubled times, yet there are countries where people are - speaking generally - happier than others. Here are the top "happiest countries" in the world!
The Covid-19 global pandemic has led to panic, has put entire countries into lockdown, and affected the world economy. However, despite all this, there are some "happy countries" where people are doing relatively well, according to an international study.
Researchers conducted large-scale interviews with more than 100,000 people in 137 countries and found significantly higher levels of well-being in all global regions than before the pandemic.
When asked to rate their lives on a scale of one to ten, people on average gave scores as high in the Covid 2020-2022 years as in 2017-19.
Things were a little worse in Western countries and a little better in the rest of the world, but overall undoubted hardship was offset by an increase in the degree to which respondents were able to discover and share their ability to care for each other in difficult times, the 10th World Happiness Report found.
Finland occupied first place in the ranking, as in previous years, while Denmark and Iceland were next. At the opposite pole to Finland is Afghanistan, ranked 137th, followed by Lebanon, and Sierra Leone.
