Looking for happiness? Head to Denmark but avoid Burundi. So says a British psychologist who has created the first “world map of happiness.” (Read a news story.) Adrian White used data such as health care, wealth, and education to create his list of happy nations. The Danes came out on top, along with European neighbors Switzerland, Austria, and Iceland. Zimbabwe, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Moldova join Burundi at the bottom. Countries in conflict, such as Iraq and Liberia, weren’t included.
