Happiness is an essential element of human well-being, and it is crucial for the economic and social development of any society. According to the World Happiness Report, which ranks global happiness in more than 150 countries around the world, Finland is the happiest country in the world for the sixth year in a row.
In this year’s report, the top spots are dominated by Nordic countries, with Denmark coming in at number two and Iceland at number three. The report also examines the inequality of happiness and uses three measures to study it. The first measure is the happiness gap between the top and the bottom halves of the population. The report finds that people are happier living in countries where the happiness gap is smaller.
