Report

Description

In this report, experts in several fields such as economics, psychology, survey analysis, and national statistics, describe how measurements of well-being can be used effectively to assess the progress of nations.

The report delves in detail into the analysis of the global happiness data, examining trends over time and breaking down each country’s score into its component parts, so that citizens and policy makers can understand their country’s ranking. It also draws connections to other major initiatives to measure well-being, including those conducted by the OECD and UNDP’s Human Development Report; and provides guidance for policy makers on how to effectively incorporate well-being into their decision making processes.

The report identifies the countries with the highest levels of happiness:

  1. Denmark
  2. Norway
  3. Switzerland
  4. Netherlands
  5. Sweden
