    If it is happiness you are seeking a move to Denmark could be in order, according to the first scientist to make a world map of happiness. Adrian White, from the UK's University of Leicester, used the responses of 80,000 people worldwide to map out subjective wellbeing.

    Sounds like a great place to be!

    Also ranking in the same category are Australia, New Zeland, Bhutan, Tasmania, Canada, United States, Malaysia, UAE, Dubai, Costa Rica, and Venezuela.

    Europe is a grab bag of happiness. Since I don't live on that continent, I don't get to talk to many people who are from there. Any idea why it's so varied?
