happy-malaysians-compressed
A new report used interviews with more than 146,000 people around the world to rank 145 countries by the well being of their residents.
Participants answered questions about five aspects of their well-being: their sense of purpose, social relationships, financial situations, community involvement and physical health. Based on their responses, participants were considered “thriving,” “struggling” or “suffering” in each of those five aspects.
Here’s the full list of rankings, in order of the percentage of people who were thriving in three or more aspects of well-being:
