Which Countries are Happiest?
Gallup and Healthways recently teamed up to poll countries globally in an effort to determine which countries' citizens are happiest and why. Rankings were assigned based on questions pertaining to five different elements of well-being: purpose, social, financial, community, and physical. The broad-perspective of well-being used in this poll is very much in line with the goals of WILL; our program explores through literature how factors like those mentioned above contribute to the happiness and purpose in our own lives.
Here is an article by USA Today that talks a bit more about the study and addresses where the United States fell in the rankings:
