Finland topped the list of happiest countries in the United Nations for the fifth time in a row. Afghanistan is the saddest country. It is followed by Lebanon. India is ranked 136th out of 146 countries, while Pakistan is ranked 121st.
The World Happiness Report is prepared on behalf of the United Nations. This is the tenth year of the report. It analyzes people's happiness, economic and social, personal freedom, their health, level of corruption, and gross domestic product. Accordingly, the situation in Serbia, Bulgaria, and Romania has greatly improved. Lebanon is second to last. Venezuela and Afghanistan are also on the list. Humanitarian problems have escalated in Afghanistan since the Taliban took power. That country is already at the bottom.
Happiness levels range from zero to ten based on information from the last three years. This is the situation before the Russia-Ukraine war. Northern Europe tops the list of happiest countries. Finland ranks first, Denmark second, and Iceland third. Switzerland and the Netherlands are in fourth and fifth place, respectively. The United States has moved up three places to 16th position. Britain is 17th and France is 20th.
It also includes an analysis of people's feelings before and after covid. It found an increase in stress and grief among people in 18 countries. However, anger has decreased. "Social support, generosity, and honesty in government are important for people's health," said Jeffrey Sash, co-author of the report. He also said that world leaders should pay attention to this.
