The Top 10 and the Most Happiest Countries in the World in 2018

Here’s a look at the happiest countries in the world list 2018, compiled by the United Nations.

Each year, United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network conducts a 156-nation survey and rank the happiest countries around the globe based on phases such as healthy life expectancy, freedom to make life choices and social support.

The results of the 2018 World Happiness Report are not overly surprising if Compared to previous year, there’s no big change between the top 10. They are really the same but with a little position exchange. The least happy Nordic country was Sweden, which passed Australia for a 9th spot.

All the top countries have high values for the six variables found to support well-being: income, healthy lifestyle, social support, freedom, trust, security and generosity.

Over the past two years, the top 10 happiest countries in the world have persisted the same, but have a little shuffled positions. Through a measurement of happiness and well-being, the United Nation have asked those interviewed to value their lives on a scale from 0 to 10, with the nastiest possible life valued at 0 and the best valued at 10.
