Happy trails.

Since 2012, the U.N. Sustainable Development Solutions Network has published an annual report on the state of the world’s happiness. This year’s study examines the connection between happiness and a country’s development.

A thousand or so citizens in each of 156 U.N. member countries were asked to rate their quality of life on a scale from 0 to 10. Meanwhile, the researchers culled data on six areas: GDP per capita; healthy life expectancy; social support, freedom; generosity; and the absence of corruption.

For the second year running, Finland has earned the top spot. Here are the results:

  1. Finland
  2. Denmark
  3. Norway
  4. Iceland
  5. Netherlands
  6. Switzerland
  7. Sweden
  8. New Zealand
  9. Canada
  10. Austria

The U.S. ranked 19th.
