OECD’s Better Life Index Says Australia Is The Happiest Nation

The latest report from OECD places Australia on top of the world in terms of life satisfaction. According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s Better Life Index, Australia ranks first when it comes to jobs, income, environment and health.

No surprise in seeing Switzerland over there, although I find satisfaction/happiness  rankings have their share of artificialness.  Here’s the complete top ten:

1. Australia; 2. Sweden; 3. Canada; 4. Norway; 5. Switzerland
