 Indian women are significantly happier with their lives than men are, according to a global survey.

Throughout the world, women seem to be somewhat happier than men, although the gender gap is most pronounced in the developing countries, according to the US-based Pew Research Center for People and the Press.

"In particular, women are much happier than men in Japan, India, the Philippines, Pakistan and Argentina," according to the survey, which involved 38,000 interviews in 44 countries.

In India, 21 per cent of the women respondents rated their lives as being on the highest rung of the ladder of life, compared to 13 per cent of men.

In the United States, 68 per cent of women and 64 per cent of men surveyed rated their lives as being on the highest rung.

The survey also found that the happiest people, men and women, live in the United States and Canada.
