Does Australia rank in your top 10 happiest countries in the world?

According to the annual World Happiness Report, Australia is ranked 9th on the list, with Norway laughing in the top spot.

The United Nations-initiated study measured “subjective wellbeing” against economic advancements.

In the report, citizens were asked to grade their level of happiness in the hope national leaders would acknowledge the research and focus on improving their country’s standing.

Western developed countries led the rankings, while countries afflicted by conflict and deprivation scored poorly.

Determining factors included social support, freedom, generosity and corruption as well as mental and physical wellbeing.
