U.N. reports that Finlanders are the happiest people
Ranking number one in the happiest division, Finland has taken over Norway, according to a U.N. 2018 report. This ranking considers the happiness level of immigrants in each nation.
“Finland has vaulted from fifth place to the top of the rankings this year,” said the report’s authors. Other three Nordic countries have made it to the other top three, making this region the happiest to live in.
For most of it, the World Happiness Report measures "subjective well-being", which refers to how happy people feel and why.
The report is an annual publication from the U.N. Sustainable Development Solutions Network and it states that the Nordic countries scored highly on income, social support, life expectancy, freedom, trust, and generosity. The report bases itself on Gallup's polls on people's well-being in the country and perceptions of corruption, generosity, and freedom.
Finland has a population of 5.5 million and is now among the least corrupt and the most socially progressive country. People trust the police and bank systems are solid. It has been ranked as the safest, most stable, and best-governed country in the world.
“That Finland is the top scorer is remarkable,” said Meik Wiking of the Happiness Research Institute in Denmark. “GDP per capita in Finland is lower than its neighboring Nordic countries and is much lower than that of the US. The Finns are good at converting wealth into wellbeing.
“In the Nordic countries in general, we pay some of the highest taxes in the world, but there is wide public support for that because people see them as investments in quality of life for all. Free healthcare and university education goes a long way when it comes to happiness, " Wiking added.
