Happiness Around the World

Happiness Around the World

Language, food and customs aren’t the only things that vary from country to country–it turns out that happiness does as well.

A new infographic from Movehub shows the well-being of different countries around the world, based on how good of job they do at providing citizens with long, happy and environmentally sustainable lives.

The United States didn’t fare too well in the rankings, with a score of just 37.3 out of 100 on the “Happy Planet Index,” which is based on living long lives with a “high experience of well-being within the environmental limits of the planet.”

On the other hand, countries like Costa Rica, Vietnam and Colombia were found to have the happiest citizens, with happiness quotients nearly double that of the U.S.

The United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, China and Spain all ranked in the middle of the pack, with happiness levels ranging from 44.1 to 47.9.
