UN Habitat should also make a world survey of places worth living in. The question would be: are you happy where you live; if yes, say why; if not, say why not.
More generally there should be more happiness surveys and statistics in the world. We have statistics and data on innumerable subjects except on fundamental values such as happiness, peace, justice, spirituality, democracy, etc.
The following statement by George Washington which I repeat here is applicable to the entire world:
"The aggregate happiness of society, which is best promoted by the practice of a virtuous policy, is or ought to be the end of all governments."
If he were alive the first thing he would do would be to create a Ministry or Department of Happiness in the US government.

Happiness dispels unhappiness as light dispels obscurity.
Therefore, switch on the happiest currents you have in yourself.

WORD FOR THE DAY
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best day and night to make you everybody else, means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting.
~ e.e. cummings
