Africa's top ten happiest countries

Mauritius is the happiest country in Africa, according to the survey. Zimbabwe is the happiest country in Africa, despite its high poverty levels. 

The United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network's 10th edition of the World Happiness Report employed statistical research to determine the world's happiest countries. The survey assesses 146 countries based on their overall happiness and highlights the happiest and unhappiest countries. 

"The World Happiness Report is revolutionizing the way we talk about progress and happiness. It provides essential glimpses of how people feel about the general quality of their lives around the world "In a statement, Christopher Barrington-Leigh, a professor at McGill University in Quebec and a researcher on the project, said 

Africa is the world's unhappiest region, with a regional score of 4.5. Because of its relatively high income levels, Mauritius remains the happiest country in the area. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, remains the happiest country in the area, despite its poverty. In 2021, around 6.1 million people were living in poverty on a global scale.
