It was compiled from a Gallup poll of about 1,000 people around the world for the years 2016-2018 and is described as "a landmark survey of the state of global happiness that ranks 156 countries by how happy their citizens perceive themselves to be".
Some users on Twitter have dismissed the rankings as irrelevant or biased:

The authors of the report say they focused on happiness and the community. The nations at the bottom of the ranking are typically affected by a combination of economic, political and social stresses.
The ranking is produced by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network in partnership with the Ernesto Illy Foundation.
