World Happiness Report Reveals the US Has Gotten Happier in 2022
Nowhere to go but up?  Perhaps.  But, for whatever reasons, the US seems to be getting happier.
The annual World Happiness Report for 2022 was recently released….  And the U.S. moves up three spots in the rankings, from last year.
In 2021, the U.S. was ranked the 19th happiest country in the world.  This year, we’re 16th happiest, out of 146 countries.
Finland managed to maintain its position as the happiest country in the world for the fifth year in a row, and Denmark follows in second place, with Iceland in third, Switzerland in fourth, and the Netherlands in fifth.
Coming in sixth was Luxembourg, followed by Sweden, Norway, Israel, and New Zealand came in tenth place.
Jeffrey Sachs, one of the editors of the report, said the World Happiness Report was created out of a “worldwide determination to find the path to greater global well-being” and that “Now, at a time of pandemic and war, we need such an effort more than ever.  And the lesson of the World Happiness Report over the years is that social support, generosity to one another, and honesty in government are crucial for well-being.”
