Launch of the 2023 World Happiness Report

Which are the happiest countries in the world? What is the consensus view about measuring national happiness, and what kinds of behaviour does it require of individuals and institutions? How have trust and benevolence saved lives and supported happiness over the past three years of COVID-19 and other crises? How does altruistic behaviour by individuals affect their own happiness, that of the recipient, and the overall happiness of society? How well does social media data enable us to measure the prevailing levels of happiness and distress?

Find the answers to these and more questions by joining the launch of the 2023 World Happiness Report, the report that thoroughly dives into different aspects of happiness and wellbeing and uses global survey data to report how people evaluate their own lives in more than 150 countries worldwide.

The World Happiness Report is a publication of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, powered by the Gallup World Poll data, and one of its editor is Jeffrey D. Sachs, our co-chair.
