Do you know that March 20 is International Day of Happiness? Let’s try to find happiness in the global landscape. The annual World Happiest Report has just released the rank of the country happiness. Originally launched in 2012, it is an annual survey by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network for the United Nations. It looks at the state of global happiness in approximately 150 countries, ranking countries using the Gallup World Poll and six factors: levels of GDP, life expectancy, generosity, social support, freedom and corruption income.

For the list of the 20 Happiest Countries, please refer to the article published by Forbes on March 20, 2023: https://www.forbes.com/sites/laurabegleybloom/2023/03/20/ranked-the-20-happiest-countries-in-the-world-in-2023/?sh=51281cc79c22Links to an external site.

  1. Choose two countries that are ranked higher than the United States this year, research these two countries (factors such as political, economic, social, technological, cultural, legal, etc.) and identify the reasons why their residents are so happy.
  2. In the same article, India is ranked as one of the top 20 unhappiest countries in 2023. Being the second-most populous country in the world (after China), India is well known for its increasing physical prosperity and cultural dynamism. Research the country and find the reasons the country is listed as one of the least happy countries.
  3. The U.S. has moved up one spot, from #16 in 2022 to #15 in 2023. What can we do to make the country happier next year?
