New York, Feb 11: It has been found that Indians, Indonesians and Mexicans are the most contended people on this earth, despite of having economic woes, conflicts and natural disasters.

Since 2007, John Wright, senior vice president of Ipsos Global had conducted a survey of more than 18,000 people in 24 countries to find that which country is the happiest one. "The world is a happier place today and we can actually measure it because we have been tracking it."

During the survey, around three-quarters of people have said that they were happy with their lives while nearly a quarter have described that they are very happy with their life.

"It is not just about the economy and their well being. It is about a whole series of other factors that make them who they are today."

Even, it has been found from the survey that Hungary, South Korea, Russia, Spain and Italy had the fewest number of happy people while Brazil and Turkey are among the top five happiest nations.

It has been proved that money can't buy happiness.

"There is a pattern that suggests that there are many other factors beyond the economy that make people happy, so it does provide one element but it is not the whole story," said Wright.

"Sometimes the greatest happiness is a cooked meal or a roof over your head," he explained. "Relationships remain the No. 1 reason around the world where people say they have invested happiness and maybe in those cultures family has a much greater degree of impact."
