Finland is the happiest country in the world in 2021 — for the fourth year in a row

Finland is ranked first in the World Happiness Report 2021. The report looks at 150 countries and assesses how happy people perceive themselves to be.

During a year dominated by COVID-19, the Finnish people's mutual trust was an important factor in Finland's No.1 spot in the ranking. 

Iceland, Denmark, Switzerland, and the Netherlands joined Finland in the top five of the report.
