Factors that contribute to National Happiness

The goal of this analysis is to determine the factors that correlate to national happiness. I retreived this data from Kaggle.
I am going to download the data set. Retrieve it, clean it and see if I can find a correlation between various factors -like income for instance- and happiness.
