Being Dark Blue On This Map Is A Good Thing

Norwegians have more reason than ever to celebrate the International Day of Happiness. After ranking fourth for the last two years, Norway jumped three spots and displaced three-time winner Denmark to take the title of “world’s happiest country” for the first time. Denmark dropped to second place this year, followed by Iceland, Switzerland, Finland, Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand and Australia and Sweden (which tied for ninth place), according to the latest World Happiness Report, released Monday by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network for the United Nations. The United States came in 14th place, dropping one place from last year. Happiness isn’t just about money, although it’s part of it. Real gross domestic product per capita is one of the key measurements, said the report. Others include generousity, a healthy life expectancy, having someone to count on, perceived freedom to make life choices and freedom from corruption.
