World Happiness Index: Ghana drops from 95th in 2021 to 111th in 2022 out of 146

Ghana has been ranked 95th in 2021 but drops 16 places to 111th in 2022 by the latest World Happiness Index.

Mauritius, Libya and Ivory Coast are Africa’s leading countries on the latest World Happiness Report released on International day of happiness.

The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Solutions Network published on Sunday its annual World Happiness Report. If happiness or well being are often deemed subjective notions, experts who participated in the report focused on 6 indicators: GDP per capita, social support, healthy life expectancy, freedom, generosity, and corruption. The rankings did not rely on the index of these factors but rather on individuals’ own assessments of their lives. Finland, Danemark and Sweden occupy the top 3 positions. The ranking of happiness is based on a three-year average from 2019-to 2021.

Top 10

Out of 146 surveyed countries, here are Africa’s best-ranked: 

52. Mauritius

86. Libya

88. Ivory Coast

91. South Africa

93. The Gambia

96. Algeria

97. Liberia

99. The Congo

100. Morocco

101. Mozambique

Compared to last year’s report, Mauritius and Libya secure the same position. Five countries progressed enough to enter this year’s top 10, namely: South Africa, Algeria, Liberia, Morocco, Mozambique.

Last three
There is no change in the last three slots. Botswana, Rwanda and Zimbabwe are the latest African countries of the 2022 World Happiness Report.

They respectively rank 142, 143 and 144. Zimbabwe, Lebanon (145) and Afghanistan (146) fall to bottom of the global ranking.
