Money = Happiness

Alexander Bastidas Fry has used data from the World Happiness Report to map the happiness score of every country in the world. He has also created a number of visualizations which compares these country happiness scores against a number of other factors. One thing that Alexander's World Happiness visualization seems to show is that happiness is very closely tied to economic production.

If you select the scatter plot option you can view how happiness compares to economic production, life expectancy, social support, freedom, generosity and absence of corruption. If you look at the scatterplot of happiness compared to economic production there seems to be a very strong correlation between happiness and economic production.

If you select a country on the interactive globe you can see the country highlighted on the scatterplot or radar plot. If you click on 'information' you can view the country's happiness score and see how well its happiness score compares to its expected score from how it scores on the other indicators.
