GOTHENBURG, Sweden, Dec. 22 (UPI) -- Nine out of 10 people in Sweden say they are both content and happy, with good health the most important factor for personal well being, researchers say.

Bengt Brulde of the University of Gothenburg in Sweden and Asa Nilsson of the SOM Institute found most Swedes say, after good health, the most important factors for well being are family, good friends, having a good and safe place to live and healthy personal finances.

Or people that have emigrated.

Seriously though, I believe this is true. I for one am happy when I'm back home in Sweden (southern part, mind you).

BigSwede, let this be a lesson to all of you unhappy, hardrock loving, gloomy people (just kidding) up north that it's time to come down and join the rest of us!

Yep. That's because they are frozen into the permanent stage of happiness.
Ask the Norwegians.
