Revealed, the happiest countries in the world: For a contented life, head to Costa Rica, Vietnam or Mexico (while the UK fares better than Spain, the US or Australia)

A new map of 151 countries has revealed exactly which parts of the world deliver long and happy lives for citizens

The map was compiled using data from latest Happy Planet Index (HPI) – a global measure of sustainable wellbeing

The HPI claims it ‘measures what matters’, rather than wealth – extent to which countries deliver long, happy lives

Countries in South America fare the best, as do New Zealand, Mexico, India, Norway, Algeria and Madagascar

UK is ranked 41, with France at 50, Spain at 62, Canada at 65, Australia at 76 and the US at 105
