Abstract: This paper investigates the concept of ‘happiness’ and how this might be measured. The motivation for this paper came about when we read about OECDs survey stating that Denmark was the happiest country in the world. The first part of the paper is an explanation on how we want to use our theorists to solve our hypothesis. We have decided to use the following theorists: Hannah Arendt, Aristotle & Anthony Giddens. We chose these theorists because we feel that their theories are relevant in the understanding of the concept ‘happiness’ and how this might be measured. Moreover have we created our own survey based on parameters mentioned by OECD and our theorists. After this explanation we analyze the responses from our survey. These responses gave us an idea on which parameters are the most important when trying to measure ‘happiness’. Thereafter we discuss if ‘happiness’ is measureable or if the meaning of ‘happiness’ is something that is felt individually. Finally we conclude on whether or not ‘happiness’ is measureable and if so, which parameters are needed in that measurement.
