Hardly surprising, people in Syria are least likely in the world to experience positive emotions, closely followed by Iraqis.
According to a Gallup poll, 46% of Syrians answered that they had experienced a number of different positive emotions the day before. The corresponding figure for Iraqis was 47% and 53% for Yemenis, earning the latter the fifth place from the bottom.
The average figure for the entire world was 73%. Syria experienced the biggest drop in positive emotions from 2011 to 2012 (-12%) while Bahrain reported an increase of 6%, the fifth largest in the world.
