Informe de felicidad: Finlandia es el "país más feliz" del mundo- ONU

BBC News, 15 de marzo de 2018.

Este año el lugar más feliz sobre la Tierra es Finlandia, acorde a un informe anual de la ONU - desplazando a Noruega del primer puesto.

El Informe Mundial de Felicidad mide el " bienestar subjetivo"- Cuan felices se sienten las personas, y por qué.
Los países nórdicos aparecen regularmente entre los cinco primeros puestos, mientras que los países afectados por las guerras y algunos del África Subsahariana comúnmente se ubican en los cinco últimos lugares.

Burundi es el menos feliz, relevando a la República Centroafricana.

Siendo lanzada a una crisis cuando el presidente Pierre Nkurunziza declaró su intención de postularse para la reelección a un tercer mandato en el 2015, generando protestas apoyadas por opositores quienes sostenían que dicha acción era inconstitucional.

This year's report by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network also features data about the happiness of immigrants in their host countries, with Finland also coming top as home to the happiest immigrants.

"I think everything in this society is set up for people to be successful, starting with university and transportation that works really well," American teacher Brianna Owens, who lives in Finland's second biggest city Espoo, told Reuters news agency.

Los países más felices del mundo: 1-Finlandia, 2-Noruega, 3-Dinamarca, 4-Islandia, 5-Suiza, 6-Holanda, 7-Canadá, 8-Nueva Zelanda, 9-Suecia, 10-Australia.

Los países menos felices: 147-Malawi, 148-Haití, 149-Liberia, 150-Siria, 151-Ruanda, 152-Yemen, 153-Tanzania, 154-Sudán del Sur, 155-República Centroafricana, 156-Burundí.

Se clasifican alrededor de 156 países por sus niveles de felicidad, y 117 por la felicidad de sus inmigrantes.

Noruega, Dinamarca, Islandia y Suiza fueron los otros países ubicados en los primeros cinco puestos. El Reino Unido y los EEUU aparecen en el decimonoveno y decimoctavo lugar respectivamente.

Togo es visto este año como el gran ganador, subiendo 17 lugares, mientras que el gran perdedor es Venezuela, el cual cayó 20 lugares al puesto 102.

'Happy countries, happy migrants'.

The study found that the 10 happiest countries also scored highest on immigrant happiness, suggesting that migrants' wellbeing was tied to the quality of life in their adopted home.

Con una población de alrededor de 5.5 millones de habitantes, Finlandia contaba con alrededor de 300.000 extranjeros en el 2016, según el informe.

" El mayor sorprendente hallazgo del informe es la notable consistencia entre la felicidad de los inmigrantes y los nativos". según John Helliwell, co-editor del informe y profesor de la Universidad de Columbia Británica.

El informe se basa en preguntar una simple y subjetiva pregunta a más de 1000 personas en más de 150 países.

"Imagine una escalera, con peldaños numerados del 0 en la parte inferior al 10 en la superior.

"The top of the ladder represents the best possible life for you and the bottom of the ladder represents the worst possible life for you. On which step of the ladder would you say you personally feel you stand at this time?"

The average result is the country's score - ranging from Finland's 7.6 to Burundi's 2.9.

Pero el informe además usa las estadísticas para explicar el porqué un país es más feliz que otro.

It looks at factors including economic strength (measured in GDP per capita), social support, life expectancy, freedom of choice, generosity, and perceived corruption.

Happiness report: Finland is world's 'happiest country' – UN.

BBC News, March 15, 2018.

This year's happiest place on Earth is Finland, according to an annual UN report - toppling Norway from the top spot.

The World Happiness Report measures "subjective well-being" - how happy people feel they are, and why.
Nordic countries regularly appear in the top five, while war-hit countries and a number in sub-Saharan Africa regularly appear in the bottom five.

Burundi was the least happy, taking over from the Central African Republic.

It was thrown into crisis when President Pierre Nkurunziza's bid for re-election to a third term in 2015 sparked protests by opposition supporters who said the move was unconstitutional.

This year's report by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network also features data about the happiness of immigrants in their host countries, with Finland also coming top as home to the happiest immigrants.

"I think everything in this society is set up for people to be successful, starting with university and transportation that works really well," American teacher Brianna Owens, who lives in Finland's second biggest city Espoo, told Reuters news agency.

The world’s happiest countries: 1 – Finland, 2 – Norway, 3 - Denmark, 4 - Iceland, 5 – Switzerland, 6 – Netherlands, 7 – Canada, 8 – New Zealand, 9 – Sweden, 10 – Australia.

The world’s least happy countries: 147 – Malawi, 148 – Haiti, 149 – Liberia, 150 – Syria, 151 – Rwanda, 152 – Yemen, 153 – Tanzania, 154 – South Sudan, 155 – Central African Republic, 156 – Burundi.

Some 156 countries are ranked by their happiness levels, and 117 by the happiness of their immigrants.

Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Switzerland were the other countries in the top five. The UK and US came in at 19th and 18th places respectively.

Togo is seen to be this year's biggest gainer, moving up 17 places, while the biggest loser is Venezuela, which dropped 20 places to 102nd.

'Happy countries, happy migrants'.

The study found that the 10 happiest countries also scored highest on immigrant happiness, suggesting that migrants' wellbeing was tied to the quality of life in their adopted home.

With a population of around 5.5 million people, Finland counted some 300,000 foreigners in 2016, reports say.

"The most striking finding of the report is the remarkable consistency between the happiness of immigrants and the locally born," said John Helliwell, co-editor of the report and a professor at the University of British Columbia.

The report relies on asking a simple, subjective question of more than 1,000 people in more than 150 countries.

"Imagine a ladder, with steps numbered from 0 at the bottom to 10 at the top.

"The top of the ladder represents the best possible life for you and the bottom of the ladder represents the worst possible life for you. On which step of the ladder would you say you personally feel you stand at this time?"

The average result is the country's score - ranging from Finland's 7.6 to Burundi's 2.9.

But the report also uses statistics to explain why one country is happier than another.

It looks at factors including economic strength (measured in GDP per capita), social support, life expectancy, freedom of choice, generosity, and perceived corruption.
