World’s Most Happy Countries 2019

#1 Finland, #2 Denmark, #3 Norway, #4 Iceland and #5 Netherlands take top honors in this year’s Gallup poll. Those traveling in Nordic countries or driving in iceland may well see this happiness in these societies firsthand.

The poll uses a three-year rolling average based on six major factors: GDP per capita; social support; life expectancy; freedom to make life choices; generosity; and corruption levels.

happy country poll

Gallop poll reveals the citizens of Nordic Countries are the most happy.


Finland was last year’s winner as well, so they must be doing something right. Rounding out the top ten were: #6 Switzerland, #7 Sweden, #8 New Zealand, #9 Canada and #10 Austria according to the World Economic Forum.

Honorable Mentions:
The USA only made it to number 19, down from 18 last year. The UK was placed 15th, one ahead of Ireland out of 156 nations surveyed.

It would seem logical that if a country really wanted to improve the happiness ranking of their citizens they might want to emulate and adopt some of the national policies of higher ranked countries.

Finland is the world’s happiest country – again
