Most of the Arab countries have a higher happiness index than Lebanon except Iraq, Palestinian Territories and Syria. I can’t say I am surprised specially after everything we’ve been through in the past 3 years.
Here’s the complete ranking list for Arab countries:
33- Saudi Arabia
113- Palestian Territories (vs Israel in 11th spot worldwide)
Check out the full report [Here].
The happiest people in the world apparently reside in northern Europe, according to a 156-nation survey published by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network.
Released Monday, the 2013 World Happiness Report ranks the happiest countries around the globe, with Denmark, Norway and Switzerland leading the pack. Among North American countries, Canada took sixth place, while Mexico (16) slightly outranked the U.S. (17). [HuffPost]
The yellow line indicates the period between 2005 and 2007 while the blue line indicates the period between 2010 and 2012.
How can the North European countries be the happiest when they have the highest suicide rates?
try living in Switzerland and see if you will be happy
Do you have stats to back up your assertion amigo? Links?
ooops..The comment was for Antoine…
Surprising how people of the Arab Gulf are happy, which truly makes me question this report, or at least question my understanding of human happiness.
soon thats going to change
Well we are probably not happy because we are by nature a nagging society.. nag nag nag !!!!
we suck at positive thinking
There are plenty of things to nag about. There is, in fact, a microscopic amount of things to be happy about in this country.
Positive thinking has its place maybe, but it sure as hell won’t fix the country.
im not happy …….sometimes …..most of the time
