Also I know a lot of people in iceland suffer from depression in the winter (they have a very long winter there, a lot of days without day light)! They drink a lot in the winter and some even commit suicide! This happy chart is questionable!!!

I don't buy this at all. Being happy is entirely a personal thing. While I can see including health on their list, and I would like to think that everyone values their education as much as I do, a lot of people are perfectly content to not have a lot of wealth. This seems like they are trying to hold everyone up to the standards of happiness, when in reality, what might make you miserable could be the best thing to happen to the person sitting next to you.
