The Global Happiness Research (GHR) project, which began in 2023 from Florida, USA, is a global research that collects, analyzes, and reports data from six continents, namely, Asia, Australia, Africa, Europe, North and South Americas. This project is initiated and funded by Dr. Bidya Raj Subedi who is also undertaking a lead role as a Director of the GHR. This study aims to explore the significant predictors of happiness globally using predictive statistical models.

The research exploration will identify significant predictors (included in the model) and rank them in the order of importance. The expected implications of this study are that people can control such significant predictors in their favor in order to create and increase happiness in life. This research will provide a substantial contribution to the field of positive psychology and spiritual science (to create a happier humanity and a better world) as the ultimate goal of humanity is to acquire and increase happiness.
