Anyone looking for access to high-quality, peer-reviewed, freely available research will appreciate this innovative site.

The fascinating articles here make large scale surveys and empirical projects sensical and relevant to anyone with an interest in well-being- for themselves, their communities, and their nation. From the homepage, click New Report to read about why Denmark is named among the happiest countries on earth, year after year. The Projects section highlights recent undertakings by the institute, including projects on Sustainable Happiness and reports on Happiness and work. While not all reports are available here, a number of them are ready for your consumption and can be read online or downloaded as a PDF. The Research section of the site may also be of interest as it covers “easily digestible” information on happiness from around the globe.
