World’s Happiest Countries: Nigeria Ranks 91
Are Nigerians becoming less happy?
Could this be connected to the harsh economic conditions currently experienced in the country?
An annual survey issued on Wednesday revealed that Finland is the world’s happiest country while putting Nigerians at 91st position.
The survey also found Americans were getting less happy even as their country became richer.
The UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network’s 2018 World Happiness Report ranked 156 countries according to their scores for things such as GDP per capita, social support, healthy life expectancy, social freedom, generosity and absence of corruption.
Finland rose from fifth place in 2017 to oust Norway from the top spot.
The 2018 top-10, as ever dominated by the Nordics, is Finland, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Switzerland, Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand, Sweden and Australia.
The U.S. came in at 18th, down from 14th place in 2017.
Britain was 19th and the United Arab Emirates 20th.
