Panama is number seven, with Chile in 19 place. :?

For the 2012 ranking, 151 countries were compared, and the best scoring country for the second time in a row was Costa Rica, followed by Vietnam, Colombia, Belize and El Salvador. The lowest ranking countries in 2012 were Botswana, Chad and Qatar.

You dont have to taking serious about happyness rates and statistical data. I say thats pure abstract thoughts it cant represent the country reality.
Why? Years ago I was studying about a country for living with my wife and Brazil in OCDE has much higher happyness rates than Chile but loses all indicators that matters.... :shock:
So whats more important? health indicators, housing, economy or some kind of happy feeling totally and incredible abstract??? Cmon.
I didnt take care about it and leave brazil follow Chile, its a much better country for living.

We just spent 5 weeks in Costa Rica. Honestly - we are considering purchasing a vacation property there, it's that nice. I can see why it's at the top. The people there are great, kind, educated, friendly, respectful, etc. Really nothing bad I can say about the ticos as people. And they all seem very happy. Pura Vida!
Living the life!
