2021 World Happiness Report

The annual World Happiness Report (previously featured in the 03-13-2020 Scout Report) looks at happiness and well-being around the world. Readers can check out how their home country ranks among others, learn the secrets of Earth's happiest countries, and consider how data can be employed to measure happiness. The 2021 report focuses on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on happiness, including mental health (chapter 5), social connections (chapter 6), and the workplace (chapter 7), as well as evaluating the effectiveness of each country's pandemic response (chapters 2-4 and 8). The most buzzed-about section of the report, the world rankings, can be found in Table 2.1 and Figure 2.1 in Chapter 2. In the page header, readers can click "Read the Reports" to find the previous eight editions of the report from 2012 to 2020. The report is written by a volunteer, interdisciplinary team of experts and uses data from the Gallup World Poll and other sources. To learn more about the writers of the report, the sources of the data, and how the data were analyzed, readers should check out the Foreword of the report, the Appendices & Data section, and the "FAQ" section on the page linked above. The report is published by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network. Readers can find a list of the project's financial supporters by scrolling to the page footer or clicking "Partners" in the page header.
