全球快樂國家排行 挪威奪冠 臺灣到第33

 According to the World Happiness Report 2017 by the UN, Taiwan is ranked as the world's 33rd happiest country, moving up two places from last year. Norway has replaced Denmark as the happiest country on Earth. Iceland, Switzerland, Finland, the Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Sweden are among the top 10. The US is down to 14th from No. 13 last year. In fact, its income has gone up over the past ten years, but happiness is declining.
 In Asia, Singapore is ranked 26th, Thailand 32nd, Japan 51st, South Korea 56th, Hong Kong 71st, and China 79th. The Central African Republic is officially the saddest nation of 155 countries.
 "It's the human things that matter. If the riches make it harder to have frequent and trustworthy relationship between people, is it worth it?" asked the lead author of the report.
 The report ranks 155 countries. People surveyed are asked to give scores from 1 to 10 on how much social support they have if something goes wrong, their freedom to make their own life choices, their sense of how corrupt their society is and how generous they are.
 
 根據聯合國公布的「2017 年全球 快樂報告」,臺灣排名全球第33, 比去年前進了兩名。挪威擠下丹麥 ,成為全球最快樂的國家。其他名 列前十的國家依序是冰島、瑞士、 芬蘭、荷蘭、加拿大、紐西蘭、澳 洲、瑞典。美國排名第14,下降了一名。其實,過去十年美國的平均 收入已有所增加,但是快樂程度卻 下降。
 在亞洲,新加坡排名第26、泰國 32、日本51、南韓56、香港71,中 國則排名第79。在155 個受訪國家 中,墊底的是中非共和國。
 撰寫報告的第一作者表示:「和 人相關的事物才是重點。如果財富 反而導致人與人之間更不易建立頻 繁而互信的關係,這樣值得嗎?」
 快樂報告共調查155 個國家,受 訪者針對幾個指標給予1到10 不等 的分數。這些指標包括:遇到困難 時國家提供多少社會支援、自由做 選擇的程度、社會貪腐程度及社會 慷慨程度等。
