According to a study, Rwandans are the most unhappy people in East Africa.
Despite the lessening of pandemic effects, happiness levels in East African nations have mostly stayed steady, according to a UN poll.
According to the annual World Happiness Report, Ugandans are the happiest in the area, ranking 117th out of 146 nations, while Rwanda is the unhappiest country in the six-nation East African Community bloc.
According to the survey, Rwandans are ranked fourth-worst in the world, ahead of Zimbabwe, Lebanon, and Afghanistan, according to the survey (the unhappiest in the world).
According to the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network’s 10th report, Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania are the world’s 30th, 27th, and eighth unhappiest countries, respectively.
The notion of pervasive government corruption was rated by respondents as the most powerful source of unpleasant feelings.
Kenya is ranked 119th in the study, two places below Uganda. Tanzania is rated 139th out of 146 nations in the world, while Ethiopia is placed 131st.
The researchers get at the rankings by asking respondents in the nations examined to analyze and grade their lives on a scale of one to ten, with ten being the greatest conceivable situation and zero being the worst possible one.
Countries may utilize happiness assessments to promote citizen well-being and implement strategies for long-term development.
The researchers employ GDP per capita, social support, healthy life expectancy, freedom, generosity, and corruption as variable variables to explain differences in life ratings among the nations studied.
For the sixth year in a row, Finland has been rated the happiest nation in the world, followed by Denmark, Iceland, Switzerland, and the Netherlands in that order.
The happiest country in Africa is Mauritius, which is ranked 52nd in the world, followed by Libya, Cote d’Ivoire, South Africa, and the Gambia.
