The World’s Happiest Countries

Its that time of year again where the annual ranking of happiest countries is revealed in The World Happiness Report. “The World Happiness Report is changing the conversation about progress and wellbeing. It provides important snapshots of how people around the world feel about the overall quality of their lives,” says McGill University Professor Christopher Barrington-Leigh. According to the researchers, this information can in turn help countries to craft policies aimed at achieving happier societies.
