Faroes a happy place to live
THE Faroes, which depends heavily on fishing and fish farming for its economy, is one of the happiest places on earth to live - so says a study by the Faroese Institute for Public Health. Isolated, windy and wet it may be, but it measures highly for issues such as work-life balance, housing and general satisfaction. The study was based on the OECD Better Life Index, which measures 11 indicators. The Faroes scored higher than other Nordic fishing countries such as Iceland, Norway and Denmark.
