Faroes a happy place to live

Fish Farmer - - News -

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.
