World Map of Happiness: Does Malaysia make to the list of the top 20 countries?

Guy Kawasaki pointed out a very interesting article – The World Map of Happiness, listing out 20 of the most happy country in the world. This article is produced by Adrian G. White, a psychologist at the University of Leicester.

What is the definition of happy here? One may asked. According to ScienceDaily:
Participants in the various studies were asked questions related to happiness and satisfaction with life. The meta-analysis is based on the findings of over 100 different studies around the world, which questioned 80,000 people worldwide. For this study data has also been analysed in relation to health, wealth and access to education.
And there you go, the 20 most happy countries in the world.
  1. Denmark
  2. Switzerland
  3. Austria
  4. Iceland
  5. The Bahamas
  6. Finland
  7. Sweden
  8. Bhutan
  9. Brunei
  10. Canada
  11. Ireland
  12. Luxembourg
  13. Costa Rica
  14. Malta
  15. The Netherlands
  16. Antigua and Barbuda
  17. Malaysia
  18. New Zealand
  19. Norway
  20. The Seychelles
Some notable countries you don’t see in the list falls respectively at USA (23), France (62), China (82) Japan (90), India (125)
And the least happy countries are: Democratic Republic of the Congo(176), Zimbabwe(177), Burundi(178)
Malaysia at 17 beats Singapore which is not in the list. This report is prior to the demise of its founding father, LKY. I guess the Singaporeans are a lot happier when the get out Singapore for a holiday in Malaysia. An we Malaysians become less happy when these Singaporeans leave their country and start littering around.
