The World Happiness Report is a study carried out every year by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Solutions Network. This year marks the ninth edition of the report, in which the organisation examines data relating to population well-being in 149 countries, and then drafts a global ranking based on the happiness of each country’s citizens.
The data, provided by Gallup World Poll and the Lloyd’s Register Foundation, after being analysed, resulted in Finland being ranked in first place for the fourth consecutive year. Italy, despite gaining three places compared to 2020, is still in 25th place; the United States placed fourteenth. Last place went to Zimbabwe, which came in behind Tanzania and Jordan.
Let’s take a closer look at the top 10.
