The World Happiness Report 2018 by SDSN
The World Happiness Report 2018 has been presented on March 14, 2018 in Rome at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences. The report is published by Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) in partnership with Center for Sustainable Development – Earth Institute | Columbia University, Center for Economic Performance, Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR), Illy and Fondazione Ernesto Illy.
The report was published for the first time in 2012 to support the United Nations (UN) High Level Meeting on happiness and well-being. Happiness is now considered to be the proper measure of social progress and the goal of public policy. In this framework, the UN has declared the March 20th as the International Day of Happiness.
The report aims at measuring the perception on standard of living and happiness of the citizens of the reviewed countries.
