When compiling the list, the GDP per capita weighted by purchasing power parity, the number of years spent in health, and whether the respondents can count on the help of their friends or relatives in case of trouble were counted.
It is also important how people in each country feel how free they can make their decisions. They consider whether respondents donated to charity in the months before the survey, and respondents were asked how much laughter and joy they had in the previous days, and how often they felt anger, sadness, or anxiety.
