Putting a smile on your dial…


The latest World Happiness Report is out, and Oz has made the top 10 – just… The report is pulled together from a Gallup survey of people from 140 countries, asking them about the quality of their lives. It looks at things like GDP per capita, social support, life expectancy, freedom, generosity and perceptions of corruption. Finland is the world’s happiest country for the seventh year in a row, with John Helliwell – the report’s founding editor – saying the Nordic nation is “pretty rich” in a range of happy-boosting factors. That’s things “like wallets being returned if they’re dropped in the street, people helping each other day in and day out, very high-quality health and education opportunities”. Denmark (#2), Iceland (#3), Sweden (#4), and Norway (# 7) also made the cut, and Aussies are the 10th happiest, just above our Kiwi cuzzie bros. As we should.
