India has been ranked 125th in the list of the world’s happiest countries. Adrian White, a British analytical social psychologist, has compiled this list based on various reports available with the UN and the World Health Organization.
Denmark tops the list of the 178 countries studied, while Burundi has to be content being the least happiest. While the US has been placed 23rd, China and Japan are at positions 82 and 90. What we Indians most like is a comparison with Pakistan. However, the rank for our neighbour is not readily available!
Reuters has more on this study…
“We’re looking much more at whether you are satisfied with your life in general,” White told Reuters. “Whether you are satisfied with your situation and environment.”
The main factors that affected happiness were health provision, wealth and education, according to White who said his research had produced the “first world map of happiness.”
