India ranks 118 out of 156 countries in world’s happiest nations list

New Delhi, Mar. 18 (ANI): Seems like India is a successful country in terms of happiness as it has ranked 118th out of 156 countries on a global list of the world’s happiest nations.

We come in behind China, Pakistan and Bangladesh, according to the United Nations’ World Happiness Report 2016.

Denmark has displaced Switzerland at the top slot, while Rwanda, Benin, Afghanistan, Togo, Syria and Burundi were the least happy countries this year.

The report, released in advance of UN World Happiness Day on March 20, for the first time gives a special role to the measurement and consequences of inequality in the distribution of well-being among countries and regions.

“People are happier living in societies where there is less inequality of happiness. They also find that happiness inequality has increased significantly (comparing 2012-2015 to 2005-2011) in most countries, in almost all global regions, and for the population of the world as a whole,” the report said.
