Nearly everybody experiences anger in everyday life, whether it’s frustrations about making ends meet, the state of public transport or a misunderstanding at work. Gallup’s 2021 Global Emotions Report set out to gauge emotions (including anger levels) in more than 100 countries around the globe. Anger tends to manifest itself more often in certain parts of the world, particularly in the Middle and Near East.

Here are the world’s angriest countries, based on countries where the highest share of respondents experienced anger on the previous day of the survey.

1. Lebanon

Percentage of respondents who experienced anger: 49%

Gallup found that 49 percent of people in Lebanon had experienced anger on the day before they were surveyed, the highest rate recorded anywhere in the world. After years-long economic turmoil and high inflation, a massive explosion in Beirut’s port destroyed large parts of the city in 2020, once more stoking anger at the country’s government for not enforcing safety measure or having the capacity to help those who were harmed.
