The 2014 World Misery Index ranks 108 countries for how much "misery" the people in a country are experiencing. The amount of misery is arrived at by adding the unemployment, inflation, and bank lending rates, and subtracting the percentage change in real GDP per capita. A higher misery index score reflects higher levels of “misery.”
