European Happiness Equality Index
The Happiness Research Institute, 2015
How is happiness distributed, beyond only looking at averages?
Happiness rankings are usually based on averages. But one thing is the happiness average, another is how happiness is distributed. With this groundbreaking index – the first of its kind in the World - The Happiness Research Institute would like to introduce the concept of well-being equality.
We hope to improve the debate about equality and increase our understanding of the consequences of inequality in society.
