Rebound in insecurity decreases perception of happiness among Mexicans


The decrease in safety rates causes Mexico to stop being a happy country; because although this state of mind is a personal matter, it cannot be separated from the environment, UNAM experts said.
In the remote press conference: “What does the happiness of Mexicans depend on?”, they reported that years ago our nation ranked first among the happiest, but it fell. According to the index of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD, 2019), it ranked 23 before the pandemic; it is currently lower.
This is due, pointed out Manuel Alonso González Oscoy, from the Faculty of Psychology, to the loss of economic security, health (“I don’t know if I’m going to get sick”, “I don’t know if I’m going to survive”) and, above all, everything, to the resurgence of intra-family and domestic violence in the months of confinement, as well as the rebound in organized crime.
