India ranking in world happiness index 

India's ranking in the world happiness index has been in the 139th position out of the participating 156 countries. Its score stood at 3.82. India’s rank has been deteriorating consistently in the Happiness Index of the World Happiness Report since the year 2013 when it stood at the 111th position, accounting for a dip of almost 25%. 

The World Happiness Report evaluates global happiness based on how ecstatic or cheerful and happy people see themselves to be. It considers six characteristics to rank a country’s overall happiness quotient:

  • GDP per capita, 
  • social support, 
  • life expectancy, 
  • freedom to make choices, 
  • generosity, and 
  • perception of corruption. 

Despite being one of the fastest-growing economies in the world in the past few years, India’s rank has been slipping in the World Happiness Index. The primary reason for this is the perception of corruption. 

The Happiness Index also considers positive and negative effects, where positive outcomes are calculated in terms of happiness, laughter, and enjoyment. In contrast, worry, sadness, and anger determine and measure adverse effects.
