Malta is the most happy place on earth, whilst Zimbabwe and the Ukraine seem to be the most unhappy.
According to an annual World Database of Happiness compiled by Rotterdam Erasmus University?s Professor Ruut
Seventy-four per cent of Maltese people said they are happy, with the rate in Denmark, Switzerland and
Colombia being 73 per cent.
Iceland, Ireland and the Netherlands are quite happy places, as well, and Canada, Finland and Ghana end
the world?s top ten, with 63 per cent of their people happy.
Money is not the main reason for happiness, the professor said. For instance, the United States ranks
16th on the world happiness list, after Guatemala and Uruguay. The leading European nations, the United
Kingdom and Germany, rank 21st and 22nd.
