Gullup:  Karabakh gets 55% Positive Experience Index

PanARMENIAN.Net - Gullup public opinion research company released a rating of the most positive countries in 2013.

According to Gallup, despite the conflict and unrest that dominates much of the news, people around the world are experiencing a lot of positive emotions. At least seven in 10 adults worldwide report experiencing lots of enjoyment, laughing or smiling a lot, feeling well-rested, and being treated with respect, while a slight majority (51%) report that they learned or did something interesting the day before.

Gallup measured each of these positive emotions in 138 countries in 2013 by asking people whether they experienced them the previous day. Gallup compiled the "yes" results into a Positive Experience Index score for each country.

Of the 10 countries in the world with the highest percentages experiencing all of these positive emotions, all but one of them is in Latin America. For the third year in a row, Paraguay (87% positive) led the world in positive emotions, with Panama (86%), Guatemala (83%), Nicaragua (83%), and Ecuador (83%) rounding out the top five in 2013.

Armenia’s Positive Experience Index totaled 56%, Karabakh’s 55%, same as Azerbaijan. Turkey, Russia and Georgia got a Positive Experience Index of 62%, 61 and 56% respectively.
