"A country with approximately 5.6 million population as of 2015 and where bicycles are more preferred than buses."
Denmark emerges, not just as the happiest country, but as the best place to live in the world according to 2017 Social Progress Imperative Study.

The study is measured based on things like access to the Internet, affordable housing, health care and freedom of expression.

Because of the finding, it suggests that money is not the only key to happiness.






The following are the reason why there is no better place on Earth to live than Denmark.

1. The country is a world leader in access to information and communication due to the high rate of mobile phone subscriptions that means one mobile phone for each Danish resident.

  • They have a high level of Internet usage, over 96% of Danes use the web compared to 75% of its citizen in the US and 91% in Sweden. 
2. Denmark leads the world in shelter because of availability of affordable housing, an issue that is very difficult to solve in other European nations

3. Denmark is first in the world for effectively enabling political rights, freedom of expression, freedom of assembly, and private property right

4. Denmark is performing within expected range of the 15 countries with similar GDP per capita and remains atop the Index due to its consistent prioritization of social progress

And because of this, Denmark's performance standouts from wealthier countries.




But in spite of this, Danish Finance Minister Kristian Jensen said, the country is facing a number of challenges.

He said it is hard for the country to encourage highly skilled professionals to bring their much-needed expertise to their economy that is facing a shortage in labor force.

Jensen noted that without foreigners, Denmark will struggle to solve its labor shortage, because even local citizens are not motivated or attracted by tax cuts.

“We could easily increase the workforce in Denmark by lowering taxes,” but there’s no voter appetite for such a policy, he said.


Jensen acknowledges that part of the problem is the perception that Denmark is less welcoming to foreigners.

He cites the example of local media broadcasting about country's strict immigration laws at work that keeping skilled individuals from working in their country.

“It’s the clear goal of the government to attract skilled labor to Denmark,” he said.

But the country’s efforts to communicate its immigration policy to the outside world haven’t always worked.

One example of this he said is the Jewelry Law which allows immigration authorities to confiscate valuable from asylum seekers.

Jensen said they are trying their best to change the tone and perception of the people about Denmark and to fix some misunderstanding.

According to Social Progress Imperative Study, next to Denmark in this list are Finland as ranked number 2, and Iceland and Norway, tied in the ranked number 3.

Currently, there are more of less 10,000 Filipinos working or residing in Denmark.
