Migration does not reduce the happiness of the local population as per the latest World Happiness Report compiled by economists and endorsed by the United Nations. It further elaborated that immigrants themselves become as happy as the nation of their migration. This is a latest and groundbreaking report with regards to the impact of migration. It is also one of the most elaborate studies of its kind.
The World Happiness Report also elaborates that the impact of immigration on broader life satisfaction was extraordinarily steady. The six factors that defined happiness include healthy life expectancy, income, social support, trust, freedom, and generosity. This was assessed over the migration level witnessed by the countries during 2005 to 2017.
No negative impact was found in the happiness of the local people due to the level of immigration to the 2 nations under consideration – Canada and the UK. On the other hand, the report demonstrates that efficiently handled migration can make a very sensible gain to the joy of people arriving in joyous nations. This is without damaging the happiness of the local population, as quoted by the Telegraph Co UK.
The WHR study shows huge gains of immigration to the migrants said Richard Layard one of the editors of the report and Professor at the London School of Economics. The report has come at a crucial juncture even as the UK is developing a sovereign immigration policy even amidst its exit from the EU.
The report is the first of its kind in that 117 nations were ranked by the happiness of their total population including the immigrants. It reveals that the migrants become as joyous as the nation of their immigration within 5 years. It was so notwithstanding their nation of origin.
Canada and the UK also have adequate elaborate data for nation’s wise analysis. This demonstrates that the immigrants become as joyous as the local people in spite of coming from nations that have considerable lesser levels of happiness.
