The world’s happiest country
Last month on the occasion of the UN World Happiness Day, the final outcome from the annual survey about people’s happiness has been presented. This research takes into account: levels of GDP, family relations, life expectancy, generosity, social support, medical care, freedom and degree of corruption. We could translate “happiness” with measurements of well-being. How does this survey work? The rankings are based on answers to the main life evaluation question asked in the poll. This is called the Cantril ladder: it asks respondents to think of a ladder, with the best possible life for them being a 10, and the worst possible life being a 0. They are then asked to rate their own current lives on that 0 to 10 scale.
The 1st report was published in 2012, this was the 4th one. In 2016 the survey reached 157 countries all around the planet.
This report could be very useful for all the other countries that aim to increase the quality of services and life of their people implementing new social structures or policies.
The winner is not a new one, because it has already been number 1 in the past: Denmark has retaken the title of “world’s happiest country”!
Congratulations also to Switzerland for the 2nd place and Iceland for the 3rd position.
Waiting to find out who will win in 2017… If you want to discover more about the happiest country, its people, lifestyle, food, history, at Q Apartments you can find a very wide portfolio of serviced apartments.
