People in South Sudan are the unhappiest with their lives, according to the survey, followed by Central African Republic (155), Afghanistan (154), Tanzania (153) and Rwanda (152).

The rankings of the world's happiest countries came from an analysis of data from surveys in 156 countries taken from 2016 to 2018.

Since 2013, the United Nations has been celebrating the International Day of Happiness on March 20 as a way to recognise the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world.unb
