Bangladesh moves ahead in World Happiness Index 2021

Bangladesh has moved up six notches on the Happiness Index, ahead of India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Myanmar.

According to World Happiness Report 2021 Bangladesh was ranked 101st among 149 countries of the world, while India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Myanmar placed 139th, 105th, 129th, and 126th, respectively.

Nepal and Maldives ranked higher than Bangladesh, with Nepal ranked 87th and Maldives 89th.

Bangladesh ranked the 107th happiest last year.

Finland, for the fourth straight time, was declared as the happiest country while Afghanistan came out at the bottom of the annual list prepared from data compiled by the Gallup World Poll.

Denmark and Switzerland was ranked second and third while Iceland and the Netherlands came in fourth and fifth positions respectively.

The US was placed 19th while the UK and Australia were in 17th and 11th positions.

The report ranks countries on six key variables that support well-being, including income, freedom, trust, healthy life expectancy, social support, and generosity.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, however, The World Happiness Report 2021 was assembled slightly differently. 

This year, the researchers focused on the relationship between wellbeing and Covid-19 to ensure the countries are judged in light of the new normal.
