Trinidad and Tobago makes it to the top 50 on the list of happiest countries in the world.

The report, prepared by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and the Earth Institute at Columbia University, showed Syria, Afghanistan and eight sub-Saharan countries as the 10 least happy places on earth to live. The United States, surprisingly didn’t even make the top 10, coming in at 13, the United Kingdom at 23, France at 32, and China at 83.

Wondering how they came up with the results? Well, surveys of 1000 people in each country were distributed to evaluate their lives on a ladder scale of zero to 10. The researchers defined six key categories: gross domestic product per capita, social support, healthy life expectancy, personal freedom, charitable giving and perceived corruption.

Switzerland, Iceland, Norway and Finland, like Denmark all have strong social security systems and happened to make the top five. Which attributes do you think contributed to Trinidad and Tobago ranking in the top 50?

Ebuzztt understands that included in Kanye’s repertoire were songs like, Damian Marley’s, ‘Welcome to Jamrock’ and the gospel hit, ‘Prince of Peace.’ The entertainer took the opportunity, during his set, to thank the people of Jamaica, saying, “I just want to thank Jamaica for the open door they gave us. I want to thank the Government, the police and the people of Kingston.”

West’s services have, thus far, been held in Los Angeles, Wyoming, Chicago, Detroit, New York City, Salt Lake City and Washington, D.C. It is reported that he plans on taking the Sunday Service show to Africa, Europe, and Asia.
