2023 World Happiness Report rankingFinland comes out on top for the sixth year in a row in the latest edition of the World Happiness Report, followed by Denmark and Iceland. The study confirms once again that Luxembourg, ranked 9th, is one of the world’s happiest countries.

Prosperity, health, freedom, generosity

The ranking of the World Happiness Report is built on 7 factors/variables:

  • GDP per capita
  • Social support
  • Healthy life expectancy
  • Freedom to make life choices
  • Generosity
  • Perceptions of corruption
  • Dystopia + residual

The interview-based study takes into account the perceptions of the population in different countries. “There is still a lot of year-to-year consistency in the way people rate their lives in different countries, and since our rankings are based on a three-year average there is information carried forward from one year to the next,” the study notes. This is clearly the case in Luxembourg, which ranked as the 8th happiest country in 2021 and the 6th in 2022.
