Norwegians are on average the happiest people in the world. What‘s their secret? It has to do with a high living standard, a life close to nature and a generally constructive attitude.

most of norwegians are depressed and weird.

People should have more skepticism about these "happiest" country claims. And, I thought it was Denmark at some point, and at another point, it was Bhutan. I never believe these surveys anyway. How do you measure happiness to begin with?

BTW, from what I heard, I think Italy, Spain, and so on should be the happiest countries. People there seem to socialize a lot at cafes and restaurants, their foods are great, they have amazing weather. That would be my two cents if you care to know.

Why they are happy? In a country with a lot of snow and rain. Have you ever watch children playing in the snow or in roads with water holes. Norwegians have time for playing. You need a positiv attitude. Ther are no bad weather just bad cloting. As long as you keep on playing you are happy.

Norways owes it to oil but prices are going down and without other im puts into the economy ,their benefits will diminish.
Costa Rica makes it better with more beautiful labdscapes and sunny beaches aside from the political system

What a sick joke. Norway has the population of one US state, Colorado. Let them deal with real issues that larger nations contend with daily.

I found this video manipulative. Do anyone question the methodology of this ranking? If we focus on things like government corruption, job security, LGBTQ rights, and healthcare, developed European countries will rank high. If we focus on how people live their lives, and positive/negative experiences ranking look drastically different and at the top, you see mainly Latin America countries.

Alt for Norge.

"world happiness index" is a bunch of nonsense. Don not believe for a second these people are the happiest. I'm from Sweden, btw.

whenever i see shit like this, i get so weirded out. norway isnt a happy country, but still its the happiest in the world. anorexia is the 3rd most common cause of death amongst young girls and more young boys commits suicide than dies in a traffic accident. the only people our government cares about are the richest white men in the country, and refugees, children, the ill and poor people are an afterthought, if thought about at all.
Adrian Hudek
Gas is the reason.If we had so much gas in our country with only 5 milion people,I would be very happy.Also,perhaps tablets they take to stop depresion may make them very happy.
Beleive me these people are missing a lot but pretend to have a lot. I can see it in their lives in this video.

But why are they not the longest living people like Okinawa. Japan, the island of Sardinia, or Loma Linda CA?

Some products are in high demand because they are so special and advanced. Germany's medical equipment industry, for example, exports two thirds of its output. And machinery made in Germany is snapped up around the world.
