Denmark named World’s Happiest country

Denmark has been named the happiest country in the world.

The findings come from a huge survey by the United Nations looked at people’s health, family lives and jobs, among other things, to measure how happy they are.

According the the results, the top 5 happiest countries are Denmark, Switzerland, Iceland, Norway, Finland.

New Zealand came in at number 8th position. Australia came in 9th position, the US came in 13th and the UK was 23rd.

Professor Jeffrey Sachs, from the team behind the report, said that the results showed that even if a country is richer, it doesn’t mean it’s going to be happier, and countries shouldn’t focus too much on money as the way to make people’s lives better.

“There is a very strong message for my country, the United States, which is very rich, has gotten a lot richer over the last 50 years, but has gotten no happier,” he said.
