  An often overlooked aspect of moving abroad - be it for work,
  family, or just a change in environment - is how happy you'll be
  when you're away from home.

  InterNations, an expat support network based in Germany, asked
  more than 20,000 people living in 187 countries and regions to
  rank their happiness based on two categories: Life in general,
  and their relationship with their partner.

  It weighted the two results and ranked the countries where expats
  are happiest.

  For reference, an average 74% of all expats say they're happy
  with life in general, while an average 84% say they're happy in
  their relationships.

  Scroll down to see where expats are happiest overall, and the
  proportion of people there who say they're happy with life in
  general. (This percentage doesn't include the proportion of
  people happy in their relationships, so is not an overall score.)
