  • Finland
  • Denmark
  • Norway
  • Iceland
  • Netherlands
  • Switzerland
  • Sweden
  • New Zealand

Also, it’s encouraging to know that for Central and Eastern Europe in 2019; people have realized a better outlook on life. This discovery was the result of life evaluations that, at a national level, are much more positive than in previous years.

The focus of the 2019 report is happiness and community. Our interaction with each other is ever-evolving due to technological and societal change. Because of this, Gallup is writing special chapters to highlight the effects of internet use, generosity, and prosocial behavior.
