Serbia 37th happiest country in the world

Serbia is in the 37th place of the happiest countries in the world, while the Scandinavian countries, Finland, Denmark and Sweden topping of the list, according to the latest World Happiness Report, published today.

From 2021 to 2023, Serbia was ranked 37th compared to 2013, when it was 69 places lower – at 106th place. Bulgaria advanced by 63 places compared to 2013, while in Afghanistan, happiness decreased the most, i.e. dropping by 13 places on the list compared to 2013 and is now at the bottom of the world ranking, in 143rd place.

Finland still ranks first in the world in terms of happiness of its population, followed by Denmark, Iceland, Sweden, Israel, the Netherlands, Norway, Luxembourg, Switzerland and Australia.

A global survey also found that young people in North America are less happy than older generations, The Guardian reported. According to the research, due to the pronounced drop in happiness of people under the age of 30, the United States of America is no longer among the 20 happiest nations in the world, reports Tanjug.

The World Happiness Report, an annual barometer of well-being in 140 countries, coordinated by the Oxford University Research Center, Gallup and the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), showed “alarming declines” in happiness of younger generations, particularly in North America and Western Europe. Britons under the age of 30 ranked 32nd on the list, behind Moldova and El Salvador, which has one of the highest murder rates in the world. By contrast, Britons over the age of 60 have made it into the top 20 happiest older generations in the world.
