KOOL Question of the Day


*Voting is 100% Completely Anonymous*

A new report shows Norway is the happiest country on Earth, Americans are getting sadder, and it takes more than just money to be happy. 

The United States was 14th in the latest ranking, down from No. 13 last year, and over the years Americans steadily have been rating themselves less happy. 

Norway moved from No. 4 to the top spot in the report's rankings, which combine economic, health and polling data compiled by economists that are averaged over three years from 2014 to 2016. Norway edged past previous champ Denmark, which fell to second. Iceland, Switzerland and Finland round out the top 5. 

The rankings are based on gross domestic product per person, healthy life expectancy and other factors like a sense of community. 

Central African Republic fell to last on the happiness list, and is joined at the bottom by Burundi, Tanzania, Syria and Rwanda.
