Where Immigrants Are Happiest

Forget Disneyland; for immigrants, Finland is the new 'happiest place on earth'...

As the latest World Happiness Report shows, in a country in which the domestic born population is happy, the same can usually be said for its foreign born residents.

As such, Statista's Martin Armstrong notes that Finland is home to the happiest people in the world - domestic and foreign born.

As our chart shows though, there are, to some extent, exceptions.

In Mexico for example, the immigrant population ranks tenth in the world for happiness, whereas when asking those born in the country, it slips to 24th place.

The opposite can be observed in Switzerland and the Netherlands where immigrant happiness ranks a good few places below that of the locals.

 something's wrong: each every Fin I know of fled or badly wants to flee his country because they hate winters there. Look at suicide rates in winter. Fins are NOT happy people.  So what does it tell if native people cannot stand their own climate? Do you think transplanted and inadapted invaders would over the long term? 

Isn't it rather related to welfare, once again?

If taking a dump is alchemy, This is alchemy. This buuuuullshiiit abuses the label "immigrant" worse than the label "worker". The obviously overlooked demographics and intent of the "migrant" blows this load out of the bowl. Migrants in Pattaya and Little St. James are happier than migrants HRC, HA, AW and DWS. Cook those Tide bars longer, Martin! Rich ladies won't buy their own fat back! Less lye! More jumpers! More high value perps walking! More hangings!

WTF do you know Adolf? Sure, who doesn't hate the weather if they live in the Nordics and prefer a warmer climate. In Finland it's cold in winter and yes there's lots of snow. Half of the population hate it, the other loves it as they can go skiing, skating, etc. I mean there's a whole fucking industry that lives off the winter months. The resorts are packed from January to March.

The so called immigrants, which are all refugees, are there for the welfare. So you got something right.

Really? Off the charts. Do you have a link to your so called chart?

Here's one for you https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2013/11/07/a-stunning…

A 2016 research by WHO shows the highest mental illness in Europe are in Monaco, Norway, Belgium and the Netherlands.

The U.S. is one of the most depressed countries in the world, according to WHO. In terms of quality years of life lost due to disability or death, the U.S. ranked third for unipolar depressive disorders, just after India and China. https://www.usnews.com/news/best-countries/articles/2016-09-14/the-10-m…

Make no mistake. There is a difference between immigrants and refugees. It matters a lot.

What EU and mainstream media trying to sell you is that refugees are equivalent to immigrants.

Mustahattu Fri, 03/16/2018 - 04:24 Permalink

Finland does not have immigrants. There's only refugees. The same goes with every country on that list except Australia, NZ, Canada, US, which have proper immigration programs in place to attract skilled labor. All the other countries just take low IQ no skills welfare leaches.

Canada pretends to have a proper immigration program. They sneak in tens of thousands through dodgy student visas, "temporary" work visas, family sponsorship etc.Trudeau also threw open the border for Haitians, Somalians, Hondurans etc.

Of course immigrants are going to be happy when they're privileged over locals. Even the offspring of earlier waves of immigrants are annoyed by it. Their parents had to struggle and work hard but not this current crop.

The whole northern European happiness thing is total BS.

 

Being unhappy is taboo here, talking about it even more so.

 

Ask any northern european who travels regularly to Spain, etc, where are people happier?

When I saw that Canada was again 7th in this ranking the other day I actually wondered how it compared between immigrants and domestic, and was expecting a lower domestic score for Canada. I'm sure it would be lower if it included 2nd generation

Total pile of bullshit. Anyone who is educated and works hard in the US has a standard of living that is fantastic. Yes there are many areas full of krap people but just don't go there. There is NO country that is immune to the piles of disgusting filth that slink around the world looking for free shit.

A lot of Finns are not 'happy' with the newcomers:

Finnish TV Releases Unintentionally Hilarious PSA on How to Protect Yourself from Rapists https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xP82h9TIRyw

The attacker is made out to be a White guy, but the fact is that it is the 'immigrants' committing the vast majority of rapes in the country. https://yle.fi/uutiset/osasto/news/wednesdays_papers_rape_statistics_an…

The immigrants might be happy, but the native Finns sure aren't.

Forget Finland, Denmark, Norway and their ilk. These countries don't have millions of moslem immigrants, yet.

Look at Sweden and Germany instead. Oh, btw where is Germany? Not in top-15. Still, Tante Angela demands MOAARRR uneducated Gastarbeiters from the moslem lands. Sweden barely made the top-10, and is probably on an express elevator to the bottom floors to meet Germany.
