The 2018 report focuses on happiness and the community

Cyprus has been ranked 49th on the list of the world’s happiest countries, far higher than previous years, according to the latest World Happiness Report published on Wednesday.

In 2017 Cyprus ranked 61st while in 2016 it was 65th.

The happiest country is Finland with Denmark, Norway, Iceland and the Netherlands completing the top five.

The World Happiness Report is a survey of the state of global happiness that ranks 156 countries by how happy their citizens perceive themselves to be. It is based on respondents’ ratings of their own lives which the report also correlates with various life factors.

The 2018 report focuses on happiness and the community: how happiness has evolved over the past dozen years, with a focus on the technologies, social norms, conflicts and government policies that have driven those changes.
