World Happiness Survey 2019
World Happiness Rankings from surveys done in 2019. The top countries are all the ones in Northern Europe that always lead: Finland, Denmark, Norway, etc. The reason the US lags down in 18th place is basically that we are angry and distrustful and think our country is messed up. As the Times points out about Finland, "91 percent of survey respondents reported being satisfied with their president and 86 percent said they trust the police."
