Kyrgyzstan - unhappiest state in CIS

Kyrgyzstan was recognized the unhappiest state in CIS. The Sustainable Development Solutions Network presents such data in the annual report on the level of happiness of countries.

When assessing the level of happiness of the population in 155 countries, such indicators as general well-being of residents, living conditions, employment level of the population, quality of social services, freedom of decision-making, generosity of population and the scale of corruption were taken into account.
