The country ranked 4th on the list, just behind Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia.

Countries are ranked according to self-assessed life evaluations and answers to the Cantril ladder question which asks respondents to rate their current lives on a scale from zero to 10.

The World Happiness Report ranked the happiest countries for those age 30 and under, who are all considered Gen Z, born in 1981-1996, or millennials, born in 1997-2012.

It is a joint effort by some of the world’s leading researchers and wellbeing scientists. The happiness ranking in the study is supported by data from the Gallup World Poll which measures individuals’ average life evaluations from 2021 to 2023.

Experts also analyzed data in six key indicators: GDP per capita, healthy life expectancy, social support, freedom, generosity and perception of corruption.

Their research into these areas provided deeper insight and potential explanations for the subjective quality of life ratings people gave.
