Mathalicious: Joy to the World

hat makes for happy countries?

Most countries measure their progress with economic data and health statistics. Bhutan takes a different tack – it measures the Gross National Happiness of its citizens. But what does it actually take to make a country happy? What about the individuals within it?

In this lesson, students interpret lines of best fit and correlation coefficients to determine what types of policy changes are most likely to positively impact a country’s well-being.
