The United States Falls In World Happiness Rankings — Again (Video)

According to a study by a United Nations initiative called the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, the U.S. has now dropped in the world happiness ranking. It now holds the 18th spot.

President Trump has not made America happier again.

For the second consecutive year, the United States has taken a tumble in the World Happiness Report’s annual ranking of more than 150 countries, published by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, an initiative of the United Nations.

The 2018 report was released Wednesday, ahead of the United Nations’ International Day of Happiness, and it has the United States ranked 18th.

That is down four spots from a year ago — and the United States’ worst showing since the annual report was introduced in 2012. The United States has never cracked the top 10.

Finland is No. 1, edging out Norway, the 2017 champion. Denmark was third, followed by Iceland and Switzerland.

The bottom three in the 156-nation list were Burundi, the Central African Republic and South Sudan — all of which have struggled with conflict and instability.
