Serbia, Bulgaria, and latvia in Eastern europe recorded the largest increases in happiness, while costa rica and kuwait came in at positions 12 and 13, respectively.

Why is happiness so high in Finland?

However, this is not the case in finland, where world-class happiness ratings are attributed, in part, to a strong work-life balance and a strong connection to nature, according to Jennifer De Paola, a happiness researcher at the university of Helsinki.

She stated, "Finnish society is permeated by a sense of trust, freedom, and high level of autonomy," adding that other important aspects included the country's robust welfare state, people's faith in government, low levels of corruption, and free public healthcare and education. Furthermore, she thinks that Finns have a "more attainable understanding of what a successful life is," in contrast to the united states and other countries where success is frequently associated with monetary gain.
