The New Economic Foundation issued the Happy Planet Index for 2012 showing how well are nations doing to keep their inhabitants living a good life, while ensuring to maintain the conditions for future generations to do the same.
The index was calculated following this formula:
Happy Planet Index = (Experienced well-being x life expectancy) / Ecological footprint
The Ecological footprint is by the way measures how quick humans consume nature capital compared to how much time earth takes to renew them.
Anyway, the report shows Lebanon in the 69th position with a life expectancy of 72.6 years, which is quite surprising knowing how much we nag here!
Globally, Costa Rica came first while Botswana was ranked last (151st). On the other hand, Algeria came first among the Arab countries in the 26th place, and Israel was ranked 15th.
