Nigeria now 91st on World Happiness Report


Nigeria has dropped to 91st in the World’s Happiest Country, Punch reports.

The list collated by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network in the 2018 World Happiness Report ranks 156 countries.

Finland comes out tops, coming from fifth place in 2017 to overtake Norway.

Burundi can be found at the very bottom, the list ranking for things such as GDP per capita, social support, healthy life expectancy, social freedom, generosity and absence of corruption.

The United States is in the 18th position with the UK in 19th.



The 2018 top-10, as ever dominated by the Nordic countries. The top ten happiest countries are:
  1. Finland.
  2. Norway.
  3. Denmark.
  4. Iceland.
  5. Switzerland.
  6. Netherlands.
  7. Canada.
  8. New Zealand.
  9. Sweden.
  10. Australia.
For the first time since it was started in 2012, the report, which uses a variety of polling organisations, official figures and research methods, ranked the happiness of foreign-born immigrants in 117 countries.

Finland took top honours in that category too, giving the country a statistical double-gold status.

The foreign-born were least happy in Syria, which has been mired in civil war for seven years.
