Testimonials from Finnish Residents

To truly understand the essence of Finland’s happiness, one must hear from the people who call it home. 

Here are some personal anecdotes and testimonials from Finnish residents:

“I’m excited to hear that Finland has once again been voted the happiest country, but it doesn’t come as a surprise to me. Ever since I moved here, I’ve felt at peace. I feel safe in this country in every regard. 

Finland is well known for its amazing educational system, healthcare, and social safety net, which I greatly admire. 

Personally though, what convinced me to stay are the people and the rich nature which offers the most amazing outdoor activities through every season. I fell in love with life here, and I am deeply convinced that others would too.”

Nature as a Classroom

Finland’s beautiful natural landscapes make it a great place to connect with nature. This connection is both fun and educational. Many schools use Finland’s natural beauty as part of their lessons to teach about sustainability and environmental awareness.

“What can I say – Finland is considered the happiest country for 7 years in a row. I have been here for 4.5 years and have been the happiest in my life ever for almost five years. Of course, the concept of happiness is interpreted by many people differently. 

I think it is impossible to be happy and joyful all the time. But in Finland, it has been possible for me to be at peace with life, and have healthy challenges for my development. Even if Finland were the second, third, or tenth happiest country in the world – I would still recommend everyone to move here, if you are interested to live in a country where things work.”

How is Happiness Actually Measured?

The results come from how people answered the poll’s main question about what defines someone’s life. There are 10s on the ladder, which stand for the best possible life, and 0s, which stand for the worst possible life. Our name for it is the Cantril slide.

Thereafter, they are given a scale from 0 to 10 to measure how good their lives are right now. The rankings come from samples that are representative of the whole country for the years 2021–2023. 

Every year, more than 100,000 people from 130 different countries participate in the Gallup World Poll. The number of people and countries surveyed changes every year. 

According to the Gallup weights, the estimates are based only on the survey scores and are meant to be accurate. Life evaluations are higher in each country. The sub-bars show how much each of the six factors is thought to add to this.

  • levels of GDP 
  • life expectancy
  • generosity
  • social support
  • freedom, and 
  • corruption
