Costa Rica is the Happiest Country on the Planet - it's official!

On Saturday the 4th of July the second global compilation of the Happy Planet Index, will be launched. The report, The Happy Planet Index 2.0: Why good lives don’t have to cost the earth, contains the results of updated data for 143 countries around the world, representing 99 per cent of the world’s population.

It also includes new analysis which examines changes in HPI scores for major nations over time.

The report is an innovative measure that shows the ecological efficiency with which human well-being is delivered around the world. It is the first ever index to combine environmental impact with well-being to measure the environmental efficiency with which country by country, people live long and happy lives.

And the Happiest Country in the World is..................Costa Rica!
