Gaiety of Nations Measured

A researcher at the University of Leicester has sifted throught 80,000 responses and declared Denmark the happiest nation in the world:

Mr White, who is an analytic social psychologist at the university, said: “When people are asked if they are happy with their lives, people in countries with good healthcare, a higher GDP [gross domestic product] per capita, and access to education were much more likely to report being happy.”

The US came in at 23 while Britain is 41st out of 178 countries surveyed.
