Is a country being gay-friendly a sign of a happy wider population? If a recent report is to be believed, it certainly may play a part.
Norway ranked high among the Our Better Life Index, which attempts to rate how happy each nation’s population is.
While the index doesn’t specifically assess for LGBT rights, there was an observable weak correlation between those countries that are more accepting of gay rights and their achieving a higher ranking in terms of happiness.
The main exception was the United Kingdom, which scored relatively lowly but, as you will see, has reason to be happy on the LGBT rights front.
