Fly to Australia to visit the world’s happiest nation

Australia has won the title of world’s happiest nation for the third year in row, following a survey of more than 30 countries. The happy country beat Sweden, Canada and Norway to be named the happiest nation among developed economies.
  

Out of the 30 countries ranked, Australia came out on top, with aspects such as its overall economic strength contributing to the win. Information collected from the Better Life Index, which was compiled by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, was used to rank all 30 countries, and gives holidaymakers even more reason to book that holiday to Australia!Perth Beach

"Australia performs exceptionally well in measures of well-being, as shown by the fact that it ranks among the top countries in a large number of topics in the Better Life Index," said a spokesperson from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. The findings also revealed that life expectancy in the land down under was significantly higher than other countries, at almost 82 years.

Other factors that have contributed to the country’s happiness include narrowly dodging the worst of the global financial crisis, ultimately avoiding recession, and a high employment rate – with 73 percent of Australians aged 15 to 64 holding a paid job. However, the happy nation is facing new challenges as the mining boom begins to ail, leading to a rise in unemployment.Happy City  

Sweden, Canada, Norway and Switzerland came in second, third, fourth and fifth, respectively, scoring high on criteria such as income levels, health and safety, and housing. The United States, Denmark, The Netherlands, Iceland and the United Kingdom made up the rest of the top ten.
