Eight countries where people suffer the most

During the global financial crisis, suffering increased globally. According to a survey recently published by Gallup, 14% of the world\’s population was suffering in 2012, compared to 11% on average before the recession began. In the United States, only 4% of the people surveyed reported being unhappy with their lives last year, up only slightly from 3% last year.

In some parts of the world, conditions are much more dire. In Bulgaria, the country with the worst numbers, 39% of the population was suffering in 2012, according to recent poll published by Gallup earlier this week. In eight countries, 30% or more of the population rated their life satisfaction as a four or worse on a scale of 1-10. These countries are plagued by disease, extreme poverty, political corruption and armed conflict. via USA Today
