International Day Of Happiness: Nigeria Ranks 116 On Happy List [See Full List]

The World Happiness Report for the year 2021 has been released to celebrate the United Nation’s annual International Day of Happiness on March 20.

Launched in 2012, the World Happiness Report is an annual survey conducted by the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Solutions Network. Typically, the statisticians base the ranking on data from the Gallup World Poll. But this year was a bit different. Since the researchers were unable to do face-to-face interviews in a number of countries, they focused on the relationship between well-being and Covid-19 in order to rank the countries.

In spite of the pandemic that killed more than 2.6 million people around the globe, countries like China and the United States of America still managed to rank among the top 20 with the U.S. shooting up to number 14 from last year's number 18.

Nigeria is the 116th happiest place in the world,  which is a rank lower than its position last year.

The countries on this year's list are:

  1. Finland
  2. Iceland
  3. Denmark
  4. Switzerland
  5. Netherlands
  6. Sweden
  7. Germany
  8. Norway
  9. New Zealand
  10. Austria
  11. Israel
  12. Australia
  13. Ireland
  14. United States
  15. Canada
  16. Czech Republic
  17. Belgium
  18. United Kingdom
  19. China
  20. France.
