The study found that Australian people needed to earn ,annually, $158,518 before reaching a greater level of happiness.

That amount is the highest in the world. In comparison, the region that required the least income for happiness was Latin America and the Caribbean, with a figure of $44,385AUD.

The number is concerning considering that the average Australian income sits at $60,892, according to the ABS.
