The special focus of the World Happiness Report 2020 was on the environment for happiness, which emphasizes more specifically on social, urban and natural environments for happiness.
Finland tops the ranking, closely followed by Denmark, Switzerland and Iceland.
Meanwhile, the least happy countries are Afghanistan, South Sudan, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Central African Republic, Tanzania, Botswana and Yemen.
The US has dropped to the 18th place from last year’s 14th.
The report aims to provide governments, businesses and civil societies with another tool to help their countries find a better way to happiness.
The UN in July 2012 proclaimed March 20 International Happiness Day, confirming that happiness and well-being are universal goals and aspirations of human beings around the world.
