India’s position in the World Happiness Report 2023
The annual World Happiness Report, published by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network, has just been released.
Finland remains the happiest country in the world for the sixth consecutive year. The report is based on data from the main life evaluation question in the Gallup World Poll, which measures how happy citizens perceive themselves to be.
The report ranked the top 10 happiest countries, with Finland in the lead followed by Denmark, Iceland, Israel, and the Netherlands. Other European countries such as Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, and Luxembourg also made the top 10. New Zealand was the only non-European country to make it to the top 10. The rankings are based on a range of factors such as social support, life expectancy, freedom to make life choices, generosity, and perceptions of corruption. India’s position in the World Happiness Report has improved from 136 to 126, although it is still behind its neighbouring countries such as Nepal, China, and Bangladesh
