New Survey: Finland Excels Europe in Happiness; Social Equality,Free Health Care Spark Happiness

A survey just released shows that Finns are the happiest people in Europe, the Euro News website reports today (July 3, 2015).

Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, and Iceland -- these Northern European countries -- topped the latest Happiness Equality Index Europe 2015 poll.

The report is from the Happiness Research Institute, an independent think tank that explores "why some societies are happier than others."

Nordic countries are often associated with happy news, as well as social equality, generous maternity and paternity leave, low crime, free health care, and, yes, high taxes.
