World Happiness and Economic Freedom
Self initiated, 2019
Does economic freedom make us happy? Are small countries economically more successful? Are there global regions which are happier than others? Does a high tax burden help a country to prosper? Which indicators help us to best understand development?
In a self-initiated project, YAAY visually compared 194 countries in five global regions using six indicators from the World Heritage Foundation and the World Happiness Report:
World Happiness Report Score – square
Overall Economics Freedom Score – black dot
Fiscal Freedom – blue dot
Judicial Effectiveness – violet dot
Government Integrity – red dot
Property Rights – orange dot.
Get a macroscopic overview and dive into micro perspectives, comparing your country to your regional neighbors, and explore the relationships between economics and happiness.
