The ninth World Happiness Report ranked Lebanon in the 123rd spot worldwide, out of 149 countries, which constitutes a drop of over 30 spots from 2019 where we ranked 91st out of 150 countries. The severe drop is obviously justified by the two hellish years that Lebanon has been going through, from the protests, economic crisis, devaluating currency, inflation in prices, Beirut explosion and other factors.
Here are the rankings in the Arab World:
25- United Arab Emirates
26- Saudi Arabia
The rankings are performed based on data collected from people in over 150 countries. Each variable measured reveals a populated-weighted average score on a scale running from 0 to 10 that is tracked over time and compared against other countries. These variables currently include: real GDP per capita, social support, healthy life expectancy, freedom to make life choices, generosity, and perceptions of corruption. Each country is also compared against a hypothetical nation called Dystopia.
