Finland has emerged as the happiest nation in the world in the sixth World Happiness Report.

Norway, which topped the list last year, finished second in the 2018 report, followed by Denmark, Iceland and Switzerland.

The report, prepared by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network for the United Nations, ranks countries on six key variables - income, freedom, trust, healthy life expectancy, social support and generosity.

The 2018 report focuses on migration within and between countries and was released on March 14, a week ahead of the World Happiness Day. It surveyed 156 countries for their happiness levels, and 117 countries to determine the happiness of immigrants.
