What is the world’s happiest country? It’s the land down under, Australia, for the third year in a row. That’s according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's report on the best developed country to live in.
What makes it happy? Well, the nation’s economy is in good shape, employment is good, life expectancy is high, the air is relatively clean. So, should we all up and move to Australia or down and move to Australia? Maybe not. What we found interesting is that Australia only does best if you measure all the factors in the study equally.
But take a look at the video to see what happens if you prioritize different factors. For safety, Japan ranks highest. In terms of overall life satisfaction, Switzerland is first. If you want the best education, go to Finland. If you prioritize the environment, Sweden would be your choice. But if you are looking to maximize income, the U.S. far outranks the rest.
So, the question is, what makes you happy?
