According to the information received, 16,950 people from all over the country participated and according to these people living in Mizoram, Punjab, Andaman and Nicobar are the happiest states. Haryana, Odisha and Chhattisgarh have come at the bottom in this case.
Here is the complete list:
This research has been done on the basis of 6 parameters:
1. Work-related issues like income and growth
2. Family relations and friendship
3. Physical and mental health
4. Social issues and philanthropy
5. Religion or spiritual affiliation
6. Covid-19's effect on happiness
According to this report, marital status, age group, education and earnings are positively related to happiness. According to this, people who give more importance to time than money, they are happier. Speaking about this to a news website, Professor Rajesh Pilania said- "Happiness is a subjective concept and the difference in ranking is due to differences in happiness components in states and union territories". According to his research, kind and patient people are most happy and prosperous.
