The World Happiness Report is an annual publication of United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network that contains rankings of national happiness and analysis of the data from various perspectives.
It measures "subjective well-being" - how happy people feel they are, and why.
The report ranks 156 countries by their happiness levels, and the 2018 Report also ranked 117 countries by the happiness of their immigrants.
