The Philippines, One of the Top 10 Happiest Smiling Countries in the World


"Jetpac set out to find the happiest country in the world - measured not by how happy people say they are, but by their actual smiles.


Finding the Happiest Countries in the World took doing image processing on over 150 million Instagram photos to count and size the smiles on people’s faces from all the cities in the World. From counting the pixels, we were able to come up with a Smile Score for every city in every country.

Smiles on the faces of millions of people in millions of photos are the most direct measure we have of happiness. Previous attempts to measure happiness have relied on survey questions or indirect measures. Jetpac is identifying smiles on faces and then measuring the shape and size of the smile - a small grin doesn’t score as highly as a broad smile. Smiling for the camera seems to be a cultural norm for a country.

A country's overall smile score was determined by averaging the scores each photo's smile received."

"Latin American countries dominated the list, with the Philippines as the only top-ten country outside of the Americas. Brazil came in first with a smile score of 60.8 out of a possible 100" according to the news in Business Insider
