Happiest Country In The World

Denmark was the happiest country in the world, according to World Value Survey that was published by the National Science Foundation of United States.

This annual study surveyed the citizen in 97 countries to find the happiest citizen. The survey asked about two simple questions about the happiness and life satisfaction level.

Puerto Rico and Columbia in the second and third place in the list. Zimbabwe was in the last place.

The study was led by professor Ronald Inglehart from Michigan University. He said was different from the other research, that measured based on the economic factor, the research that he did found prosperity not the only cause of happiness.

"Our research indicate prosperity related with happiness, but not the most important factor. Personal freedom more important, and freedom in all matters. The freedom of politics, like democracy and the freedom chose," he said.

The whole world was happier, according to the survey, that was carried in 1981.

Dr Inglehart said equality between a man and woman was also the indication of happiness, the same things with social tolerance that increase. He said that the two factors rose dramatically in several years later.

The richest country in the world, United States, was in the 16th place in the happiest country list, behind Switzerland, Canada and Sweden.
