Mapped | The Happiest Countries in the World in 2021, by Region – Visual Capitalist

  • Mapped: Global Happiness Levels in 2021

“Are you happy?” is a deceptively complex question to both ask and answer.

It’s generally understood that having enough money to cover your needs and wants can help you live a relatively happy, comfortable life—and recent research shows this relationship may increase linearly as income levels grow, as well.

However, there’s much more to it than that. Happiness levels depend not just on financial security, but also broader perceptions of one’s social support, personal freedom, and more.         

This series of map pulls data from the World Happiness Report to uncover the average scores of 149 countries between 2018-2020, and which ones emerged the happiest or unhappiest. We also look at the most and least improved countries in every region.

    What happened to Guyana and Suriname? Was there insufficient happiness to justify inclusion in the global analysis?

    The happiest countries became happy from the pain and suffering of the African brothers. We should demand reparations, and see how quick North America and Europe get red:

    Why is Israel a happy country? Is it from a Holocaust survivor (which I agree), or is it because they don’t have to pay rent because Americans from Brooklyn steal land from the Palestinians?

    Norway, Finland, Luxemburg, Liechtenstein, Switzerland – Colonial powers? Really?!

      Those countries have royalty or are used as money laundering hubs to park stolen monies from Africa: Luxembourg and Liechtenstein come to mind. Countries like America park laundered monies for paid-off dictators, and Canada allows money laundering in real estate while making it a crime to offend the corrupt Minister Alison Redford.

    I am happy in Guyana.

    Canada is a s-hle racist country.

    What race are the victims?

    White women poison the water and try to get children poisoned:

      From what I can surmise from the information gleaned from a search engine:

      1) the incident happened in rural Alberta in a small town which is policed by the RCMP;

      2) the woman is white, evil and racist;

      3) the victims are non-white;

      4) Alberta is a Trumpian, bigoted province;

      4) the RCMP took a sample of the contaminated water but it was apparently rejected by their lab due to COVID-19;

      5) the woman admitted to dumping a substance in the barrel- RoundUp Concentrate;

      6) she was charged with mischief, a misdemeanour in Canada;

      7) Environment Canada has taken soil, water and tree samples for laboratory analyses. The results are not yet known.

      All in all, nothing much will become of the matter. She will be given a slap in the wrist and told to be careful.

    This is sick, reckless and dangerous. Were there any consequences for the woman? Did you report her to the police?
