The UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network releases the World Happiness Report once a year. It gives evaluations of the variables that affect happiness, such as income, social support, and life expectancy. It ranks nations according on how happy their residents believe themselves to be. The report is primarily based on information from the Gallup World Poll’s primary life evaluation question. The inaugural report first came out in 2012, and since then it releases yearly, usually in March.
The World Happiness Report evaluates happiness levels on a global and domestic scale using a variety of variables. India’s rating in the survey has improved, but it still stands in contrast to many of its neighbours.
Based on responses from a nationally representative sample of people on their current levels of life satisfaction. The report measures happiness.
Rankings for this year:
For the sixth consecutive year, Finland continues to lead the globe in terms of happiness. The next-happiest nations are Denmark, Iceland, Israel, and the Netherlands. Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, and Luxembourg rounding out the top 10. Denmark, Iceland, Israel, and the Netherlands are also in the top 10. The Gallup World Poll’s primary life evaluation question, which gauges how content people feel about their lives, provided the data that formed the basis of the rankings.
India’s ranking in the World Happiness Report has increased from 136 to 126. However it still trails its neighbours Bangladesh, Nepal, and China. India frequently ranks low on the survey despite having the fastest-growing economy in the world. This has some people wondering how it can rank behind unstable nations.
Afghanistan is the least happiest nation out of the 137 nations in the World Happiness Report. The Democratic Republic of the Congo, Zimbabwe, and Lebanon were all mentioned in the survey as being among the least happy nations. This is mostly because to issues like high levels of corruption and short life expectancies.
