REVEALED: These Are The Happiest Countries in The World

The UN has published the updated 2016 edition of its World Happiness Report, which reveals that Denmark is once again the world's happiest nation.

Denmark is closely followed by Switzerland, Iceland, Norway and Finland. New Zealand has done very well, coming in 8th place, and what's even better is that we beat our foes, Australia. 

The report has found that happiness is lowest in Sub-Saharan Africa, which contributes eight of the ten lowest scoring countries in the index, including Rwanda, Benin and, in last place, Burundi. 

The data for the World Happiness Report is gathered from the Gallup World Poll, which users a combination of telephone and face-to-face interviews in 160 countries around the world, with questions that cover everything from personal well-being to education, employment and access to media.
