Five Saddest Countries in the World?

The Gallup-Healthways Global Well-Being Index has analysed the sadness of the population in 135 countries. Afghanistan ranks as one of the top five saddest countries coming in as the second saddest; only people in Syria are sadder. Five factors were considered: social well-being, financial status, community well-being, purpose and goals, and physical health. The other four countries are Syria, Chad, Haiti, and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Hmmmm . . . what does that tell about Afghanistan? The United States came in close to the top of the list; with only 13 countries a bit happier (among them Denmark, Sweden, Canada, and the Costa Rica).
