The happiest countries have the lowest rates of religiosity

It dawned on me recently, thanks to a reader’s question, that I wanted to know happy atheists are and is a country full of mostly non-believers would be a happy place to live. So, I looked up some statistics on happy countries and happy people in hopes of finding this out. I’ve met loads of happy atheists. I also know happy believers. I was curious though, when applied to the large scale of cities and countries, how much does religion (or lack thereof) play a part in happiness. I found some pretty interesting numbers.

"I caught the happy virus last night
When I was out singing beneath the stars.
It is remarkably contagious,
So kiss me."
