The Happy Planet Index measures what matters: sustainable wellbeing, life expectancy, inequalities of outcomes, ecological footprint with data collected from various sources including UNDP and Gallup data. It tells us how well nations are doing at achieving long, happy, sustainable lives.

Pakistan ranks 36th at the report out of total 140 countries.

It will be worth mentioning in 2012 Happy Index Report, Pakistan ranked 16th among total 151 countries.

In this report many of the economically strong countries even fall behind as they fall behind in Ecological Footprints.
