For the fourth year in a row, Finland has been named the world’s happiest place, according to an annual UN report.
Denmark ranked second in the World Happiness Report, followed by Switzerland, Iceland and the Netherlands.
New Zealand was again the only non-European country ranked 10th. Britain moved from 13th to 17th.
Analyst researcher Gallup’s data asked people in 149 countries to rate their happiness.
Measures including social assistance, personal freedom, gross domestic product (GDP) and the level of corruption.
The country was the most unhappy in the world, followed by Lesotho, Botswana, Rwanda and Zimbabwe.
The authors of the report said that while pointing out the possible effects of infectious diseases, the authors of the report said that only third countries had a “significantly higher frequency of negative emotions”.
However, things improved for 22 countries. In last year’s ranking, many Asian countries were performing better than this, while China is ranked 94th and 84th.
“Surprisingly, there was no decline in average well-being when people measured their own lives,” said John Haleywell, one of the authors of the report.
“One possible explanation is that people see Code 19 as a common, external threat that affects everyone and creates a greater sense of solidarity and harmony.”
The authors say that Finland “has achieved a very high status on these epidemic confidence measures that have helped protect lives and livelihoods during epidemic diseases.”
According to Johns Hopkins University, the Nordic nation of 5.5 million people performed much better than the majority of Europe during the epidemic.
