Did you Know? Madagascar remains one of the world’s unhappiest places
The World Happiness Report, which strives to "redefine the growth narrative to put people's well-being at the heart of government initiatives," ranks Finland first among 156 nations, followed by Norway, Denmark, and Iceland. According to the report, Madagascar is the 14th unhappiest country in the world. It's hardly surprising that it's one of the poorest countries in the world, with a per capita GDP of $1,554 (ranking 179th out of 187 nations) and an average life expectancy of only 65.5 (in the UK, it's 81.2).
The United States is one of just eight countries in the world that does not mandate paid maternity leave.
