The UN’s “World Happiness Report published recently, / «WORLD HAPPINESS REPORT 2016» – is intended to show a direct link between happiness and social and economic development of countries. The first report of the happiest countries was published in the wake of the high-level meeting on the theme of well-being in 2012, when it was decided that the country’s GDP does not sufficiently reflect the quality of human development and the best measure of happiness. In other words, it was proposed to assess the level of socio-economic development of the country taking into account the extent to which people feel happy and comfortable in their particular country.
