Who is happiest?


When dealing with indicators of economic performance in Year 10 EandB it is useful to consider how they compare to one of the measures of 'happiness'. One such indicator is rankings on the UN's World Happiness Report.

Have the class predict (individually or in pairs) the top 10 happiest countries in the world according to this report which is based on 2015 to 2017.

The answer is: 1. Finland 2. Norway 3. Denmark 4. Iceland 5. Switzerland 6. Netherlands 7. Canada 8. New Zealand

9. Sweden 10. Australia
