Australia, top 10 happiest country in the world

We may be working hard, property is expensive, but according to the annual World Happiness Report Australia is home to some very happy people.

 

Participants in 155 countries were asked the same question: “Imagine a ladder, with steps numbered from 0 at the bottom to 10 at the top. The top of the ladder represents the best possible life for you and the bottom of the ladder represents the worst possible life for you. On which step of the ladder would you say you personally feel you stand at this time?” 

Norway knocked Denmark off the top of the list as the happiest country in the world.

Education, occupation, income and social aspects are all factors that were considered when measuring the happiness levels in each country.
