According to this year’s Global Happiness Survey, Finland has been called the happiest country in the world for the fourth year in a row, amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

The Global Happiness Report, first published in 2012, is an annual survey undertaken by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Strategies Network. Global satisfaction is ranked in countries all over the world, according to the study.

 

The happiness index featured polls about how countries dealt with the coronavirus pandemic, which has rocked the planet for over a year.

 

According to the writers of the study, this year’s survey looked at the impact of the recession on the nature and quality of people’s lives, as well as how governments dealt with it.

 

“Surprisingly, there was not, on average, a deterioration in well-being as assessed by people’s own appraisal of their lives,” said John Helliwell, a professor at the University of British Columbia and one of the report’s contributors. “One potential interpretation is that people see Covid-19 as a general, external danger that affects all, which has resulted in a stronger sense of unity and fellow-feeling.”

 

Iceland was ranked second in this year’s survey, followed by Denmark, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.
