Are Filipinos Truly Happy?

The latest Social Weather Station (SWS) poll showed that 4 out of 10 Filipinos or 44% are “very happy” with their lives while 37% of those 1,440 surveyed said they are also “very satisfied.”

The United Nations (UN) reported in March that the Philippines ranked the 69th happiest country in the world (out of 156). This is consistent with a Gallup survey, “which finds an increase in the percentage of Filipinos who consider their life positive enough to rate it as ‘thriving’ in recent years,” reported Forbes.
