World’s Happiest Countries: Report

The second edition of “World Happiness Report” was just released and it presents the world’s happiest countries, a top based on various criteria such as social support, higher life expectancy, gross domestic product per capita, perceptions of corruption, and others, all explained in the report.


Now, I don’t know about you, but after seeing the top 10 happiest countries in the world, I was curious to see how some of the countries I visited and like did. Of course, I wanted to see how Romanian did – and no, the conclusions aren’t in its favor: Romania ranks 90 out of 156… But first, here are the top 20 countries in “Ranking of happiness”:

  1. Denmark
  2. Norway
  3. Switzerland
  4. Netherlands
  5. Sweden
  6. Canada
  7. Finland
  8. Austria
  9. Iceland
  10. Australia
  11. Israel
  12. Costa Rica
  13. New Zealand
  14. United Arab Emirates
  15. Panama
  16. Mexico
  17. United States
  18. Ireland
  19. Luxembourg
  20. Venezuela

Yes, I was very happy to see Austria in this top 10 – as this is a country I like and one I want to visit again and again :). Germany ranked 26, Czech Republic – a country I visited last year – ranked 39 and, in what all the other countries are concerned, I am recommending you to check out the top (page 23).

What do you think of this top? And how did your country ranked? And where would you want to live?
