What is happiness ? Is it possible to measure the Happiness ?
It’s difficult to quantify happiness because it’s a human emotion influenced by love, contentment, joy, or enthusiasm. Researchers, on the other hand, have created a technique for assessing happiness that can be used to evaluate happiness to some extent. Happiness is measured by psychologists using theoretical models. Happiness is viewed as a combination of positive activities and emotions in this concept. In this situation, three additional factors are taken into account: joy, commitment, and money.
Remember that money cannot bring happiness. Being wealthy isn’t the only way to be content. Man can be happy without money if he lives in a safe and secure environment now and in the future.
How many organizations exist to assess the happiness of countries around the globe?

The association between well-being and covid-19 was examined in depth in this year’s report. It also aims to evaluate how governments around the world have handled with the Coronavirus, in order to explain why some countries have fared better than others.
Why do they use these six factors to explain life Evaluation?
The variables chosen reflect what has been determined to be essential in explaining national-level disparities in life evaluations in the study literature. Some key factors, such as unemployment or inequity, are missing because comparable international data for the entire sample of nations is not yet available. Because some are correlated with each other (or with other important factors for which we do not have measures), and in several cases there are likely to be two-way relationships between life, these variables are intended to illustrate important lines of correlation rather than to reflect clean casual estimates.
