Morocco ranked among the saddest countries in the world… depressing!


It’s official, the Covid and the economic crisis have ended up getting the better of our legendary joie de vivre. Still absent from the list of the top 50 countries of the happiness index published annually under the supervision of the United Nations for a decade, Morocco indeed ranks in 100th place this year after obtaining 5,060 degrees out of 10, while the Finland is at the top of the ranking for the fifth consecutive year.

Morocco has fallen 11 degrees in the ranking, dropping from 89th place in the world in 2019 to 100th out of 146 countries in 2022, and ranked at the level of North Africa in third place, behind Libya (86th globally) and Algeria (96th globally), Tunisia 120th and Mauritania 133rd globally.

Finland retained the title of “the happiest country in the world” with a significant difference from the rest of the world, and Denmark also retained second place, followed by Iceland in third place, then Switzerland fourth, with the Netherlands in fifth place.

The report, published annually under the supervision of the United Nations since 2012, is based on data from surveys around the world concerning the assessment of people on their life in more than 150 countries, their perception of their level of happiness and the results compared to the country’s GDP and assessments related to the level of solidarity, individual freedom and corruption, to give an assessment of the joy of living of their populations according to the necessarily subjective responses of the samples surveyed. Can we therefore trust the conclusions of such studies or would we only be in the grip of a collective crisis of post-covid blues that we hope will be temporary?
