Written by on March 21, 2017 in Bulgaria - Comments Off on World Happiness Report: Bulgaria in 105th place

The World Happiness Report 2017 was just released. It is a comprehensive ranking published by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, in cooperation with the United Nations. The ranking is based on six key values. They are caring, freedom, generosity, honesty, health, income and good governance.

Bulgaria is one of the countries which moved a bit higher in the ranking, but it still landed on the 105th out of 155 places only, flanked between Egypt and Sierra Leone.

The first ten places are occupied by these countries: Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Switzerland, Finland, the Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Sweden. All in all, Scandinavia is clearly winning, along with the “usual suspects”.

The Central African Republic is on the 155th spot.

Bulgaria is weak in virtually all areas, according to the World Happiness Report, except in “social support”.
