Norway named Happiest Country of 2017

Norway has been judged to be the happiest country in the world, in the United Nations’ latest World Happiness Report.

The Scandinavian nation, which was ranked fourth in last year’s report, jumped to the top this year on the basis of several key calculations for measuring social happiness, among them levels of caring, freedom to make life decisions, generosity, good governance, honesty, health and income. Other factors by which 155 countries were measured in the annual World Happiness Report are: employment, income inequality, life expectancy, GDP per capita, public trust and social support. Denmark, last year’s Happiest Country, was ranked second on this year’s list, followed by Iceland and Switzerland.
