    You have marked India as Happy nation, we are not high on happiness quotient. Bhutan is Happiest take a look at it. I suggest you re-do the article with correct data.

    Based on this map, it seems dodging bullets, having fraudulent elections and widespread poverty makes people happy?

    There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics. This infographic, being based on statistics, is a whopper of a lie.

    Without an explanation of the data I was really skeptical myself. It only took a few clicks to find that these indexes are based on the Happy Planet Index (first I'm hearing of the thing), which has environmental footprint as one of the three major factors. So this is in fact a measure of the happiness of the planet, not people. This might have had a place on a tech site if there was some more explanation. The group that made the infographic missed the point too. Took me longer to write this comment than to find the info...just sayin'...

    According to the infographic, I live in one of the happiest countries around, Venezuela ... yay, I guess?
    One need only to go out and see people frowning and shouting at each other while in block-long queues to obtain basic goods such as milk, soap, motor oil, cold meds, etc., to realize that something must be way off in the data from which that infographic was made. Perhaps it is government supplied data.

    And seriously, Cuba??? The same Cuba from where people try to cross the 100 mile shark-infested caribbean waters on makeshift boats in hope of reaching Florida despite knowing they are going to be third class citizens there?

    This is a joke. My bullshit detector almost exploded.
    The top ten "happy" are the most miserable countries with war, gang, drugs, poverty or other issues, and to seal the deal, Mexico is happier than both US and Canada, yet masses of illegal immigrants cross the border into the US.

    Thanks for the worthless article guys. The nose dive that makeuseof too in the last couple of years is really sad.

      This is not the only study that has had these results. Many other studies have shown similar results, namely that Central/South American countries tend to be happier. I am not sure why that is though, maybe people there make the best with what little they have? Or perhaps the cultures themselves play a role?

    Yeah, yeah, Pakistan, Iraq, and Syria are regular DisneyWorlds. People there couldn't be happier living there. What kind of study could that have possibly been?
