Nearly everybody experiences anger in everyday life, whether its frustrations about making ends meet, the state of public transport or a misunderstanding at work. Gallup's 2019 Global Emotions Report set out to gauge emotions (including anger levels) in 143 countries. Anger tends to manifest itself more often in certain parts of the world, particularly in the Middle East.
Gallup found that 45 percent of people in Armenia experienced "a lot of anger yesterday", the highest rate recorded anywhere in the world. After years of war, Iraqis have a long list of topics to be angry about and that includes a lack of basic public services in many parts of the country due to a lack of government assistance/funding in areas liberated from ISIS. Iraq had the second highest levels of anger in the polling at 44 percent. Close behind, 43 percent of Iranians are also angry with political, economic and social frustrations becoming more evident in some quarters of the country over the past decade.
