    The nations in the top ten are
    10.Austria
    9.Israel
    8.Finland
    7.Switzerland
    6.Sweden
    5.The Netherlands
    4.Australia
    3.Norway
    2.Canada
    1.Denmark

    Finally, I've never understood why we were so happy in the first place, with extremely high murder rates. Terrible test scores. Well at least it's official now.

    I'm not surprised that Singapore isn't in.

    I find it far worse than the US.

    But no Japan? I'm surprised! Japanese are very affectionate.
    Although I must say when I was at Netherlands, I felt 'like home'. That kind of feeling...

    I wouldn't put the US on this list, either.

    Here's something for you to consider.

    How would the US ever make the list? The US is one one abysmal state at this point. Not a whole lot of reasons for the nation as a whole to be happy.

    Hurrah Canada!

    I'm surprised too. In fact, if I were forced to move from Canada, Japan would be my first go-to country even if my Japanese-tongue is somewhat limited.

    Not just Singapore, our country isn't in the list too. And I'm also not surprised about that. [​IMG]

    Does this come as surprising to anyone in this world? Really? Really?!

    I'm actually kind of surprised with Australia. Although I'm sure the people and country itself are quite pleasant, I've heard some nasty things about some censorship blah. "Too violent" games, movies, etc. taken to an extreme by the Government.

    Maybe most don't really care, not sure.

    I'm surprised Israel is on there. Oh well.

    Go Canada though! I love going up there

    I think it's a bad time for everyone. The world should be happy as a whole. These "life satisfaction scores" are just numbers. And here I thought happiness couldn't be measured. But I guess this statistic is right. I'm not too happy with the circumstances right now.

    Japan probably would've cracked the top five had they not suffered that major disaster a few months back.

    I mean, such extreme "censorship-ness" could have quite a toll on those affected.
    If the Canadian government started pulling out games like Mortal Kombat or other games remotely violent, I'd be kind of annoyed.

    I kind of guessed nobody read the article here's how they measure happiness. "The Index is based on 11 measurements of quality of life including housing, income, jobs, community, education, the environment, health, work-life balance, and life satisfaction."
