We all have heard of World Happiness Index. We have heard about it because this index gives India a very low rating. People in India who believe in this rating ironically do not believe in ratings that shows India in good light. On the other hand, there are people who wonder how India can be ranked so low when we see countries that appear in far more distress than India ranked higher than India.

There are not too many people who actually buckle down and try to go to the details of this world Happiness Index. Not even the media who report on this topic. I have been thinking of going to the depth of this World Happiness Index for quite some time but I was not able to find time. You see, people like me who are inherently happy most of the time cannot be easily persuaded to waste time analysing an Index that accuses you of belonging to a country whose population is unhappy. 🙂

Nevertheless, someone had to do the painful job of analysing this world Happiness Index. No one in India is seemingly interested so I have volunteered and I have done it. In this post, I will give my findings on this index.

World Happiness Index is published by “The Sustainable Development Solutions Network” of the UN. They release their annual report on 20 march which has been declared as International Day of Happiness.

The General Assembly of the United Nations in its resolution 66/281 of 12 July 2012 proclaimed 20 March the International Day of Happiness recognizing the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world and the importance of their recognition in public policy objectives.

The meeting was convened at an initiative of Bhutan, a country which recognized the supremacy of national happiness over national income since the early 1970s and famously adopted the goal of Gross National Happiness over Gross National Product.

World Happiness Index is compiled considering six characteristics to rank countries on overall happiness: GDP per capita, social support, life expectancy, freedom to make choices, generosity, and perception of corruption.

Factor Source data Remarks
GDP per capita World Bank /IMF figures Data can be considered objective
Social support Gallup polls Data is highly subjective as well be discussed later
Healthy Life expectancy WHO figures Data is objective
Freedom to make life choices Gallup polls Data is highly subjective as well be discussed later
Generosity Gallup polls Data is highly subjective as well be discussed later
Perception of corruption Gallup polls Data is highly subjective as well be discussed later

Let us discuss these factors in detail

Following two factors (out of six) can be considered Objective factors:-

Factor Maximum to Minimum range Remarks
GDP per capita 2.200 to 0.000 The GDP/capita is processed in a mathematically complicated mannner to arrive at figures where higher per capita nation gets assigned higher value. Luxembourg gets the highest value while Venezuela gets the lowest value
Healthy life expectancy 0.702 to 0.000 The life expectancy figure is processed in a mathematically complicated mannner to arrive at figures where country with higher life expectancy gets assigned higher value. Hongkong has the highest figure whereas Mozambique gets the lowest figure

I thought it was not possible to bungle in the above factors because figures for them are available on reputed sites. For example, GDP per capita is available on sites like World Bank, IMF etc. Likewise figures of Life expectancy are available on WHO site.

I notice that the country with the lowest GDP per capita in the Happiness chart is Venuzuela ! It defies logic. Venezuela per capita GDP is $ 7260 on PPP basis and $3460 on Nominal GDP basis in 2022. There are at least 50 countries behind Venezuela on GDP per capita basis. Such glaring error casts severe doubts on the authenticity of Happiness Index, at least for Venezuelans, if not for others. Had Venezuela’s rank been correct on GDP per capita basis, they would have ended up in top 30, instead of ending up at 89th position in the latest Happiness Index, (all other things remaining same).

I hope healthy life expectancy figures do not contain any such glaring errors.

The highest figure theoretically achievable for the above two factors is 2.200 + 0.702= 2.902. The lowest figure theoretically possible is 0.00. The actual highest achieved figures is 2.383 by Taiwan followed by USA of 2.370. So these two countries are the happiest if only GDP per capita and life expectancy rankings are considered. The actual lowest figures achieved on these two factors is 0.341 by Venezuela and 0.570 by Mozambique.
As discussed above, the faulty ranking of Venezuela in GDP per capita means that they end up at the very bottom when we add up its marks for the two factors.

As for India, India will be in 101th position with 1.411 marks. Pakistan with 1.238 will be at 109th position. Nepal 107th with 1.260. Bangladesh 97th with 1.487 marks. Sri Lanka 68th with 1.847 marks.

Now we come to the subjective factors. Unlike figures of GDP per capita and life expectancy which are collected and maintained by reputed world bodies with considerable experience and expertise, no well defined and accepted standards exist to measure the four subjective factors that form such a large part of World Happiness Index..Following are the four subjective factors that are considered while measuring happiness :-

Factor Maximum to Minimum range Remarks
Social support 1.620 to 0.000 Data is highly subjective as will be discussed later Iceland gets the highest rating Afghanistan the lowest
Freedom to make life choices 0.772 to 0.000 Data is highly subjective as will be discussed later .Finland scores the highest Afghanistan the lowest
Generosity 0.422 to 0.000 Data is highly subjective as will be discussed later. Indonesia scores the highest Georgia the lowest
Perception of corruption 0.561 to 0.000 Data is highly subjective as will be discussed later. Singapore scores the highest viz it is least corrupt-Romania considers itself the most corrupt

How were these figures arrived at ? Based on Gallup world polls (GWP). What are gallup polls? Gallup is an organisation that supposedly approaches a few people and ask them simple YES/ No questions. Based on the reply, the countries’ Social Support, Freedom to make choices, generosity and perception of corruption are measured and entire country gets branded. It is basically the opinion of the people polled. We know that opinions are not facts, but this World Happiness Index tries to pass off opinion of a few people as facts about a country.

Let us see what questions are asked. Under social support, the question anked is “If you were in trouble, do you have relatives or friends you can count on to help you whenever you need them, or not?”. The national average of the binary responses (0=no, 1=yes) to the Gallup World Poll (GWP) question is taken. In “social support”. India ranked an abysmal 121st is social support, but Pakistan and Bangladesh were even behind India as 123 and 132. Perhaps all these people are watchers of sad Hindi movies where society does not support the love birds. 🙂 I was under the impression that Asian countries with better social and family ties offers way more support to an individual in need than in Western countries where these ties are quite weak. Nevertheless, what people say in this poll matters in the happiness ranking , not the reality.

Under generosity, the question asked was -“Have you donated money to a charity in the past month?”. If the ansewr is yes, then the people of that counry are considered generous other wise miser. The fact that there are ways of being generous other than donating money, such as helping out by devoting time and effort, feeding hungry people free of cost etc does not count towards generosity as far as this happiness index “generosity” factor is concerned. When we look at the chart, we find that Nepal (one of the least developed countries in the world) which even today is getting loan from IMF is ranked at number 26 in Generosity. They consider themselves far more generous than G-7 countries with money like Germany (57), France (113), Japan(135) etc even though they do not lend any money to any other country. All they had to do was just to reply YES to the relevant generosity related poll and they leapfrogged most of the actually generous countries of the world. Likwise Pakistan (ranked 65) is considered more generous than China (88). 🙂 And we thought otherwise. 🙂

Freedom to make life choices is the national average of binary responses to the GWP question “Are you satisfied or dissatisfied with your freedom to choose what you do with your life?” Reply to this question throws up some hilarious rankings. Nepalese, who have hardly any options to chose from, feel that they have full freedom to make their life choices. So much so that they get a rank of 63 which is higher than USA (70) and Japan (71).

Perceptions of corruption are the average of binary answers to two GWP questions: “Is corruption widespread throughout the government or not?” and “Is corruption widespread within businesses or not?” Where data for government corruption are missing, the perception of business corruption is used as the overall corruption-perception measure. Perception of corruption polls are no less amusing. Myanmar is ranked 33 which is higher than the ranking of USA (38). Even Bangladesh at 40 considers itself less corrupt than South Korea (41), Israel (44), Spain (45) etc. In Indian sub continent, Sri Lankans consider themselves more corrupt than their other south Asian neighbours.

Theoretically the highest scoring country can score the maximum of 3.375 in the four factors (viz. 1.620 + 0.772 + 0.422+ 0.561= 3.375). The highest figure actually achieved under these categories is 3.018 by Finland followed by 3.016 by Denmark.
Likewise the worst scoring country can score a low figure of 0.000 + 0.000 +0.000 + 0.000=0.000. In reality the lowest scoring country in these categories is Afghanistan at 0.152 followed by Lebanon at 0.687.

When we combine the marks of two objective categories with the marks obtained in the four subjective categories then we get overall points under the six catogories. According to that, Singapore emerges first at 5.52 points, Denmark comes at number 2 with 5.503, Sweden is third at 5.492 , Norway is fourth at 5.486, Finland is fifth at 5.441, Israel 23rd at 4.782, USA is 25th at 4.769.

Among Indian subcontinent countries, Sri Lanka is 73rd with 3.817, Nepal at 96th with 3.173, India 101st with 3.057,Bangladesh 106th with 2.922, Pakistan is 114th with 2.649.

I can see vehement protests coming from some quarters because the World Happiness ranking shows India behind all its neigbours in general, and behind Pakistan and Bangladesh in particular.

I am going to explain how India fell behind Pakistan, Bangladesh etc despite outscoring them in the six categories. India was put behind Pakistan and Bangladesh by shifting the goalpost. Yes, those who create this world Happiness Index have kept a trick up their sleeve which they use to manipulate the ranking arbitrary at their whim and fancy. To achieve this manipulation, they have introduced another category called Dystopia + residual.

“Dystopia” is a hypothetical nation that scores the lowest under all categories. Dystopia represents the lowest national averages for each of the six key variables and is, along with residual error, used as a regression benchmark.

From the earlier discussion we have seen that “Dystopia” nation would achieve a score of 0.000 under the six categories. The country that comes the closest to Dystopia in our ranking seen so far is Afghanistan that scores 0.883. Next country after Afghanistan is Comoros with 1.847.

From the above explanation of Dystopia, one would assume that countries that score high marks (and are thus far away from the hypothetical country of Dystopia would have similar marks under the heading of Dystopia + residual. Likewise countries that score poorly under the six factors and are thus closer to Dystopia would be expected to score similar marks under the heading of Dystopia + residual. Not by a long shot ! We cannot be more wrong !

We find that countries that score very high under the six headings and countries that score abysmally can have similar scores under the heading of Dystopia + residual. On the otherhand Countries that have similar scores under the six categories can have vastly different scores under the category of Dystopia + residual. In fact, countries that were way behind after adding up their marks under the six categories were made to leapfrog other nations rather unfairly and arbitrarily.

Here are some examples to show the arbitrariness of all this.

Singapore that stood first in ranking when the scores of six categories were counted was given a score of only 1.067 in the category of Dystopia + residual. Denmark was given 2.084, Sweden 1.903, Norway 1.829 and Finland 2.423.

When this dystopia + Residual category figures were added to the sum total total of the six categories, Finland became the number one nation, whereas Singapore, for no fault of theirs was relegated from number one position down to 26th position. Israel, who were on a lowly 23rd position, jumped up to 4th because they were given a whopping 2.691 under the category of Dystopia + residual.

Let us see the above discussion in tabular form:

Country sum total marks of six categories Ranking after sum total of six categories Marks given in the category of Dystopia + residual Final marks Final ranking
Singapore 5.520 1st 1.067 6.587 26th
Finland 5.441 5th 2.363 7.804 1st
Israel 4.782 23rd 2.691 7.473 4th

We have heard that Finland was number one in the happiness ranking for the fifth year in a row. How creditable, we are told. Now we know how they are achieving their number one ranking year after year. It is by using corrupt means. It has been done by awarding them very high marks and awarding the actual winner very low marks on the artificially and fraudulently created category of dystopia + Residual.

Let us now come to the changes in ranking of Indian subcontinent nations before and after Dystopia + residual marks.

Country sum total marks of six categories Ranking after sum total of six categories Marks given in the category of Dystopia + residual Final marks Final ranking
India 3.057 101st 0.979 4.036 126th
Pakistan 2.649 114th 1.907 4.555 108th
Bangladesh 2.922 106th 1.361 4.282 118th
Nepal 3.173 96th 2.187 5.360 78th
Sri Lanka 3.817 73rd 0.625 4.442 112th

We observe that Sri Lanka was 73rd and India was 101st in the happiness ranking. But those who publish the list had other ideas. They awarded low marks to India and Sri Lanka and such high marks to Pakistan and Bangladesh under Dystopia + residual that they rose above India. In their overenthusiasm, they awarded such high marks to Nepal that it reached a rank of 78th where it hardly belongs.

India finds itself behind Pakistan and Bangladesh, and also behind countries like Mali and Liberia, but then that was because Mali and Liberia were artificially granted huge points viz 2.070 and 1.869 respectively under the category of Dystopia + residual, otherwise they were at the bottom without the grace marks provided under Dystopia + residual.

The data for this happiness index 2023 is available in the excel sheet format at this link.

The relevant page containing the above data is this and this.

So, my conclusion is, this world happiness Index is a bogus ranking. It is hogwash, it is fraud. It should not be taken seriously. The people behind this ranking are taking people for a ride by creating a list that is based on dubious data where opinions of a few hundred people are used to brand an entire nation as happy or unhappy. When even that does not serve the purpose, they further move nations up or down the list by arbitrarily increasing or decreasing their marks in the column of dystopia + error which itself is a column created to manipulate the rankings.

Gallup methodology of poll shows that they take a poll of a few hundred people without doing any due diligence to ensure that their polls follows the principles of sampling. In a country like India, whose population is more than that of any continent (other than Asia), a truly representative sampling would run into at least 25 thousand people, may be a few lakhs, and it would take elaborate preparation and vast expenditure on the scale of Indian elections opinion polls. I do not think Gallup have bothered to spend so much time, money and effort while carrying out their polls in India, if at all they have bothered to carry it out. Had they done this exercise in India, this would have been a vast exercise and we would have known about it. But we do not know anything about it. So most likely, their poll in India has been an eyewash. Few people seem to have questioned their methodology. Most people interested in Indian affairs seem to have blindly believed this happiness ranking and they have used this ranking to bash the Indian government or it has been used to troll India and Indians.

Based on the above discussion, I feel that the world Happiness Index is not worth the paper it is printed on. Indians should stop giving credence to it because plainly speaking it is nothing but a fraud that has successfully been perpetrated for over a decade by now. Forget Indians, people worldwide should also question the people behind this Index. So far they have managed to avoid scrutiny and have continued on their own merry ways.

I hope readers will now gain some insight into the mechanism of this so called World Happiness Index. The creators of this index decide the ranking beforehand and then they artificially award points under the column of Dystopia + residual. It is the most corrupt methodology to make a list.

I have not yet analysed press freedom index, democracy index, human rights index etc. There too India is ranked low behind countries that have now press freedom, no democracy and no human rights. When I analyse them, I am sure I will find similar gory details there as well.

I have mentioned in the beginning of the post that I am by nature a happy person. My guess is that most readers of this blog are also like me. I feel that music lovers are by nature well adjusted people who find it easy to stay happy most of the time. Even our film songs are no different. In almost all movies of golden era, we had happy joyuos songs where actors would be seen singing and dancing, often for no apparent reasons. On other occasions, they are singing and dancing because it is some festival/ celebration. Indians have so many festivals, and so many occasions of celebration. And all those occasions finds people singing and dancing. If that does not count towards happiness index, that is the problem of the index makers. Indians are more happy than the Happiness Index makers can ever imagine.

Here is a happy song from a movie called “Dil Ka Raja”(1972).

‘Dil Ka Raaja-1972’ was produced by A K Nadiadwala and directed by P. Madhwan for ‘Nadiadwala Associates, Bombay’. The movie had Raj Kumar, Leena Chandavarkar, Ajit, Bindu, Jagdeep, Indrani Mukherjee, Randhir, Meena T., Sheikh, Surendra Rahi, Manjeet, Omkar, Pandit Iqbal, Jankidas, Uma Dutt, Rajesh, Maqbool, Master Anil, Master Ripal, and Waheeda Rehman (in special appearance) etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

While looking for a joyous song to go with this post on World Happiness ranking, I came across that song. I realised that I had last heard this song in 1972, when this song was quite a popular song. I loved this song, though I had no inkling which movie this song was from. Now more than half a century later, I find myself getting reunited with this song, like how it happens in a Manmohan Desai movie.

The song is sung by Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey. It is picturised as a joyous dance song on Raj KUmar (double role of father and son, Leena Chandawarkar and Jagdeep plus another person that I could not uidentify. I request our knowledgeable readers to identify the unidentified person. What a wonderfully lively and joyous song ! Enjoy !

Thanks for identifying Meena T. Jagdeep I could identify.


Atul ji,
Almost a dissertation. Very informative 👏
DKR was the remake of super hit Tamil movie ENGA OOR RAJA, 1968, starring Sivaji Ganesan, Jayalalitha and Sowkar Janaki. Remade in Telugu as DHARMA DAATA, 1970, with ANR, Kanchana and Sowkar Janaki.

The guy singing in Manna Dey ‘s voice is Jagdeep.

Thanks. It sounds like a dissertation when writing/typing. It may not appear so if explained verbally. Thanks for the information about the original movie.


Great Post Sir ji. Hats off to you for this detailed study that you have presented after lot of painstaking efforts.
As you have rightly mentioned that ‘a person happy by nature’ would care least about this study, and that applies to people like me too. With the vast ‘treasure trove’ of music around us we are always happy 🙂

This article has enriched me about the whole process of how this ranking is done and the details about each of the factors taken into consideration.
I will surely be going through this post once again and may be again to understand this ‘fraud’ process again. (especially to understand more about the dystopia+residual).

I was excited about the song this post will be coming with and I must say I like the song very much. I do not remember to have listened to it or watched it earlier.
Thanks again for this wonderful post.

Thanks for the comments. It is clear that there are powers that are very jealous of India. And they come up with such rankings where they invariably show India in a bad light vis a vis countries that are clearly in worse position than India. This article gives us some idea what fraud activities are resorted to while preparing these so called rankings.


Atul ji,
Thanks for a well-researched article. Your critical assessment of the World Happiness Index has thrown many shortcomings of the way the Index is constructed which I was not aware.

The basic problem with World Happiness Index is that it does not take into account the fact that the happiness is the state of mind where the emotion plays a big role. How can answers to the questionnaire decide the happiness index?

Your assessment gives me a feeling that many of the annual reports like World Happiness Index, World Press Freedom Index, Human Freedom Index etc which are based on the western concepts are used as psychological tools to suppress the potential competitors to the developed countries.

Thanks for your comments. Your feeling that these reports are aimed at pooh poohing Indian achievements and progress is well founded, as can be seen from the analysis of this ranking. We thought Indian are jealous. These rankings show that some foreigners are far more jealous than we thought.


Atul Ji,
Excellent post, painstakingly researched, on some of the indices, amply underlining the fact that there is no need to research on correctness of other indices presented.
Agreed that these studies are not worth the paper it is presented on. India, with all its draw backs, is a great country, and I am happy to be an Indian, so are innumerable Indians, and we dont need outsiders’ certification.

Thanks for your comments. We should not give credence to these rankings. But sadly there are people in India who use these rankings gleefully to criticise Indian government and Indians. I came across such articles in mainstream Indian newspaper houses while reasearching for this topic. There I realised how ignorant and biased these Indian mediapersons are.


Atul ji,
Thanks again for a very thought provoking and interesting article on Happiness index.
1. Happiness Index is just one of the many things that the jealous and frightened western groups who are unable to digest India’s unprecedented rapid progress towards becoming a solid power, will do to undermine India in the world’s eyes.
2. The Govt. of India and the people who matter, have done right by coolly ignoring it.
3. Happiness is not a matter to be decided by asking questions to select people, it is a matter of mental state. That is why even a person living in a jungle can be a happy person with whatever he is doing and getting.
4. If at all a survey has to be conducted for public opinion, as you have rightly pointed out, in a country like India, you do need a sample of all strata of the population which may run into at least a Lakh of people.
5. I appreciate the kind of efforts and hard work you have put in collating information from various sources to prove that the Happiness Index in its present avatar is a cooked up dish to mislead to world, on purpose. One needs genuine mental caliber to do so in order to bring the truth to the fore.
Thanks once more for providing food for thought and enjoyment to the brain, as usual.

Thanks for your detailed comments.
Getting to the root of this complicated conspiracy is a challenging task. That is why few people bother to analyse it and take the easy way out to blindly believe it. That is what the people creating this rank want. Hopefully, now people will be able to the the conspiracy that is going on to try and pull India down. Just imagine Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan etc being shown as happier than India just to spite India.

Right thinking Indians need to be on their guard and they should question these rankings instead of blindly believing in them.


Your excel sheets are blank , it is also observed in 10 year challenge posts , pl check and update. Thanks Satish Bhandarkar

Other e mail subscribers have confirmed that their notifications contained proper tables. So I think it could be a local problem at your end.


Atul ji,

I echo the sentiments of fellow-readers comments above.
Many Thanks for dissecting the “index” threadbare.
That the agenda is pre-determined even before analyzing the so-called “data” is amply clear.
“Dystopia” was an eye-opener for me.
Thankfully, we have an happy song to get over the bogus ratings. 🙂


Thanks for your comments. I hope that many more people will become aware about the fraud practices that are adopted while preparing this list.


Atul ji,
Thank you for the well researched article. I read the full post first thing this morning.

The methodology used for this particular index is a revelation. Dystopia is what ? a hoax ?

“an imagined state or society in which there is great suffering or injustice, typically one that is totalitarian or post-apocalyptic.
“environmental disaster is the backdrop to this modern dystopia”

The opposite of Dystopia is Utopia.

Happiness is like all human emotions, very relative. An achiever may not be happy enough with a first rank, and a non-achiever, will be on top of the world with a third rank. It is how we perceive ourselves.

My own observation is that people are never happy because of how much they have. They are usually happy if they are content in what they have.

Trust the west, to try and quantify some thing so subjective, with statistics and try to keep emotions/perceptions in boxes :-).
This is the way they are going to find the ‘God particle’ one day, or has someone already done it ?

We must also remember that success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. if you love what you are doing, you will be successful. Here again perception comes into play.



Thanks for your appreciation. You are right. The people taking up this task of preparing Happiness Index have no idea what Happiness is all about. Based on their experience of western way of life, they have come up with this hare brained methodology. Moreover, they had their own agenda too which ensured that this World Happiness Index ended up becoming a propaganda tool that would show their favourites in good light and those they dislike in bad light.
