10 Happiest Countries in the World, Ranked

BRB, moving to Scandinavia.

Happiness is a difficult thing to measure, but one initiative at the United Nations has been trying to figure it out. Every year, the U.N. Sustainable Development Solutions Network publishes its World Happiness Report—a study that examines the connections between happiness and development, all while encouraging policymakers to place more of an emphasis on the former. Around 1,000 people in each U.N. member state rate their quality of life on a scale from 0 to 10, while researchers cull data from six areas: GDP per capita, life expectancy, social support, trust and corruption, perceived freedom to make life decisions, and generosity. The World Happiness Report 2020 was released recently, and the results are…not surprising (i.e. every Nordic country made the cut)—but we still recommend checking out the top 10 list below. Who knows? Maybe just reading about these places will put a smile on your face today.
