Haiti was rated 42 out of 143 countries. We came in 42 for the happy planet index. Costa Rica came in 1st, Dominican Republic 2nd, the United States came in at a sorry 114th place. So please when talking about us, change our last name for us. Instead of Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. We can all say Haiti the 42nd happiest country. 🙂 Here is the link. The paper is 64 pages and explains how they came up with this rating. The chart is page 64.
We are happy!
