    Pakistanis happier than Indians: World Happiness Report






    WEB DESK (Dunya News) It has been revealed through the World Happiness Report 2017 released by a UN agency that a Pakistan citizen continues to be happier than an Indian.
    As per details, Pakistan has been ranked 80th while India stands at 122 in the World Happiness Report 2017. As far as the last year reports are concerned, Pakistan stood at 92 while India was placed at 118.
    The World Happiness Report 2017 was released by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), a global initiative launched by the United Nations in 2012, to coincide with the United Nations International Day of Happiness that also falls today.
    The list has been topped by Norway while its neighbors Denmark and Iceland as well as Switzerland also remain in the top slots.
    "Happy countries are the ones that have a healthy balance of prosperity, as conventionally measured, and social capital, meaning a high degree of trust in a society, low inequality and confidence in government," Jeffrey Sachs, the director of the SDSN and a special advisor to the United Nations Secretary-General, revealed in an interview.

    lol stop rambling like an idiot will ya and ask someone who actually knows something. That's called the art of constructing proper and coherent sentences. Look in to it, you'll get a long way no matter what the language. I asked you to simply translate your rectal afflictions in to Urdu. But oh no! you had to demonstrate your lack of education by coming across as a complete moron. Like I told you before, if you can't say something intelligent, it's better to stay quiet. I tried to dumb it down for you, hope you get the point now.
    Feel free to biatch and moan. Unfortunately I have to move on to other posts and read something worth reading. I'll let you entertain me some more on some other post of yours. I'm sure there will be plenty. Your bread and butter depends on it.

    World Happiness Report 2017: Pakistan Tops South Asian Nations


    World Happiness Report 2017 ranks Pakistan (score 5.269) at 80, well ahead of the rest of South Asia.

    The latest world happiness report released on March 20, 2017 ranks Bhutan (score 5.011) at 97, Nepal (4.962) at 99, Bangladesh (4.608) at 110, Sri Lanka (4.44) at 120, India (4.315) at 122 and Afghanistan (3.794) at 141 among 155 nations surveyed.


    Norway (7.537) has the highest score that combines economic, health and polling data compiled by economists that are averaged over three years from 2014 to 2016. Denmark (7.522) ranks second followed by Iceland (7.504), Switzerland (7.494) and Finland (7.469) making the top 5.

    At the bottom are Sub-Saharan African nations of Tanzania (3.349) at 153, Burundi (2.905) at 154 and Central African Republic (2.693) at 155. War-torn Syria (3.462) is at 152.

    World Happiness Report 2017 offers the following rationale for its annual happiness measurement exercise:

    "The first World Happiness Report was published in April, 2012, in support of the UN High Level Meeting on happiness and well-being. Since then we have come a long way. Happiness is increasingly considered the proper measure of social progress and the goal of public policy.

    In June 2016, the OECD committed itself to redefine the growth narrative to put peoples well-being at the centre of governments efforts.1 In a recent speech, the head of the UN Development Program (UNDP) spoke against what she called the tyranny of GDP, arguing that what matters is the quality of growth. Paying more attention to happiness should be part of our efforts to achieve both human and sustainable development she said."

    The survey uses Cantril Self-Anchoring Scale, developed by pioneering social researcher Dr. Hadley Cantril, consisting of the following:

    1. Please imagine a ladder with steps numbered from zero at the bottom to 10 at the top.

    2. The top of the ladder represents the best possible life for you and the bottom of the ladder represents the worst possible life for you.

    3. On which step of the ladder would you say you personally feel you stand at this time?

    4. On which step do you think you will stand about five years from now?

    In addition to the answers to Cantril questions, the survey considers the following six variables: GDP per capita, social support, healthy life expectancy, social freedom, generosity, and absence of corruption.

    Going by regions, European and North American nations are at the top of the list while sub-Saharan African nations are at the bottom. The rest of the world is in the middle.

    In addition to median income and wealth, the prevalence of depression is among the key factors determining a country's happiness or the lack of it. The report notes that Pakistan has made significant efforts in treating rural women's depression. Here's an excerpt from the report:

    "Community health workers (Lady Health Workers) were trained to identify and treat maternal depression, using a CBT-based ( intervention (the Thinking Healthy Program). The initiative used 16 home-based individual sessions and included active listening, collaboration with the family, guided discovery and homework (Cognitive Behavioral Therapists) is, trying things out between sessions, practicing what was learned). Forty local areas were assigned to either intervention or routine care, with about 450 mothers in each group. At follow-up sessions (after six months) the experimental group included 23% still depressed, compared with 53% in the control group. In another study, psychoeducation is being offered to all mothers."

    A Lancet paper describes the mental health intervention as follows:

    "Lady Health Workers (LHWs) were trained to deliver a Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) based intervention to depressed women, beginning in the last trimester of pregnancy and ending at 10 months postpartum. The intervention is based in a psychosocial model and not presented as a treatment for a mental health problem but rather as way to improve positive and healthy thinking around the mother and the baby. The actual delivery of the intervention was integrated into the routine work of the existing community health worker called Lady Health Worker (LHW) and delivered at the womens home. LHWs are mainly responsible for maternal and child health care".

    The Lady Health Workers (LHW) program in Pakistan has been described as one of the best community-based health systems in the world by Dr. Donald Thea, a Boston University researcher and one of the authors of a recent Lancet study on child pneumonia treatment in Pakistan. He talked with the New York Times about the study.

    Pakistan's relatively lower levels of depression and suicides (less than 3 per 100,000) in South Asia are reflected in the region's suicide statistics. A 2013 scientific paper titled "Mental Depression of Indian Women" published in "Anthropology" described the situation in India as follows: "Suicidal rate in India is higher comparing to other countries in the world. In each year over a half million people put their own lives down globally, of them 20% are Indians (17% of world population). However, during last two decades the rate of suicide has increased from 7.9 to 10.3 per 100,000".

    India's youth suicide rate of 30-40 per 100,000 is among the highest in the world, according to a Lancet study. In addition, Indian farmers' suicides are continuing unabated at a rate of one every 30 minutes for the last two decades.

    The problem of suicides appears to be at least in part due to the fact that India's value added agriculture continues be among the lowest in the world. Unlike India, Pakistan managed to significantly raise agriculture productivity and rural incomes in 1980s through a livestock revolution. Economic activity in dairy, meat and poultry sectors now accounts for just over 50% of the nation's total agricultural output. The result is that per capita value added to agriculture in Pakistan is almost twice as much as that in Bangladesh and India.

    The key to improving happiness in developing countries like India and Pakistan is to focus on meeting basic needs such as education, nutrition and hygiene, in addition to addressing issues of health, including mental health.

    Pakistanis continue to be happier than Indians: UN report

    Pakistanis continue to be happier than Indians: UN report

    ISLAMABAD: It has been revealed through the World Happiness Report 2017 released by a United Nations (UN) agency that a Pakistani citizen continues to be happier than an Indian.

    As per details, Pakistan has been ranked 80th while India stands at 122 in the World Happiness Report 2017. As far as the last year reports are concerned, Pakistan stood at 92 while India was placed at 118.

    The World Happiness Report 2017 was released by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), a global initiative launched by the United Nations in 2012, to coincide with the United Nations International Day of Happiness that also falls today.

    The list has been topped by Norway while its neighbours Denmark and Iceland as well as Switzerland also remain in the top slots.

    "Happy countries are the ones that have a healthy balance of prosperity, as conventionally measured, and social capital, meaning a high degree of trust in a society, low inequality and confidence in government," Jeffrey Sachs, the director of the SDSN and a special advisor to the United Nations Secretary-General, revealed in an interview.

    India ranked at 122 out of 155 countries in the World Happiness Report 2017, four notches below its previous rank of 118. The report was released on Monday at the United Nations at an event celebrating International Day of Happiness.

    India was behind the majority of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (Saarc) nations, apart from war-ravaged Afghanistan, that stood at 141.

    Among the eight Saarc nations, Pakistan was at 80th position, Nepal stood at 99, Bhutan at 97, Bangladesh at 110 while Sri Lanka was at 120. However, Maldives did not figure in the World Happiness Report.

    AT A GLANCE: HAPPIEST, SADDEST COUNTRIES

    HAPPIEST COUNTRIES
    1. Norway 7.54
    2. Denmark 7.42
    3. Iceland 7.5
    4. Switzerland 7.49
    5. Finland 7.47
    6. Netherlands 7.38
    7. Canada 7.32
    8. New Zealand 7.321
    9. Australia 7.28
    10. Sweden 7.28
    SADDEST COUNTRIES
    146. Yemen 3.59
    147. South Sudan 3.59
    148. Liberia 3.53
    149. Guinea 3.51
    150. Togo 3.49
    151. Rwanda 3.47
    152. Syria 3.46
    153. Tanzania 3.35
    154. Burundi 2.91
    155. Central African Republic 2.69

    Norway moved from No. 4 to the top spot in the reports rankings, which combine economic, health and polling data compiled by economists that are averaged over three years from 2014 to 2016. Norway edged past previous champ Denmark, which fell to second. Iceland, Switzerland and Finland round out the top 5.

    Studying happiness may seem frivolous, but serious academics have long been calling for more testing about peoples emotional well-being, especially in the United States. In 2013, the National Academy of Sciences issued a report recommending that federal statistics and surveys, which normally deal with income, spending, health and housing, include a few extra questions on happiness because it would lead to better policy that affects peoples lives.

    The entire top ten were wealthier developed nations. Yet money is not the only ingredient in the recipe for happiness, the report said.

    In fact, among the wealthier countries the differences in happiness levels had a lot to do with differences in mental health, physical health and personal relationships: the biggest single source of misery is mental illness, the report said.

    Income differences matter more in poorer countries, but even their mental illness is a major source of misery, it added.

    Another major country, China, has made major economic strides in recent years. But its people are not happier than 25 years ago, it found.

    The United States meanwhile slipped to the number 14 spot due to less social support and greater corruption; those very factors play into why Nordic countries fare better on this scale of smiles.

    What works in the Nordic countries is a sense of community and understanding in the common good, said Meik Wiking, chief executive officer of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, who wasnt part of the global scientific study that came out with the rankings.

    The rankings are based on gross domestic product per person, healthy life expectancy with four factors from global surveys. In those surveys, people give scores from 1 to 10 on how much social support they feel they have if something goes wrong, their freedom to make their own life choices, their sense of how corrupt their society is and how generous they are.

    The full report can be accessed here.
