World Happiness Report

See this article discussing it, with the actual report here. Norway is #1, with the top 10 including Denmark, Iceland, Switzerland, Finland, Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and Sweden. The US moved from 13 last year to 14 this year due to, according to Jeffrey Sachs, a "multi-faceted social crisis" of "worsening public health indicators"; "plummeting" trust in government; and "astronomical" income inequality, with "the rise of mega-dollars in U.S. politics" and the "deterioration of America's educational system" helping to fuel "destruction of social capital."

See the article and the report for much more. We can expect the US to drop even further next year given the current Administration and Congress.
