U.S. drops from top 20 happiest countries list in 2024 World Happiness Report


Recommended Posts

Unhappy news for Americans: The United States is no longer among the 20 happiest countries in the world, according to new data from Gallup and its partners.

In the newly released 2024 World Happiness Report, the U.S. dropped out of the top 20 on the list for the first time in the report's 12-year history. The U.S. now ranks at No. 23, compared to No. 15 last year. 

The researchers say this is driven in part by a decline in how Americans under 30 feel about their lives. 

"In the US, happiness or subjective wellbeing has decreased in all age groups, but especially for young adults," Gallup managing director Ilana Ron Levey told CBS News in an emailed statement, adding that social connections are one key factor contributing to these generational disparities in happiness.



The driver is young people.  I'm going to blame social media.  Using the internet for relationships is a poor substitute for the real world.
