Bulgaria advanced 8 places in the Global Happiness Index report, which was prepared at the request of the United Nations.
This research measures the citizens’ satisfaction and well-being with life. Indicators are not only limited to GDP and life expectancy, but also depend on the level of corruption in the state, social assistance to individuals, education, and the ability of citizens to make important decisions that affect public policy with the state. The World Happiness Ranking, published for the tenth time, examines the level of happiness in 150 countries.
Finland tops the list for the sixth time, followed by Denmark and Iceland.
It ranks 77th after Bulgaria, the Philippines, Peru, Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, Colombia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Compared to the previous ranking, which covers the years 2019-2021, Bulgaria advances by 8 places.
There is another promising conclusion drawn from the Global Happiness Index report: The level of global happiness did not decline during the pandemic years, and the level of tolerance is about 25 percent higher than it was in the pre-Covid-19 era.
