World Happiness Report: In a surprise, Pakistan stands above China and India

ISLAMABAD - A World Happiness Report has been published every three years since 2012 it reveals the global rankings of happiness.

Currently, Finland tops the list while Burundi is at the last position. Interestingly, Pakistan ranks 75th among 156 countries, the happiest among all their bordering nations. China was ranked 86, Bangladesh 115, Sri Lanka 116, India 133 and Afghanistan 145.

While people might generally feel that their happiness is something intangible which cannot be given a number, this new measurement approach is increasingly popular among governments who want to move beyond economic growth as a measure of a nation’s value and progress.
