Millennials say Canada is the best country in the world, according to a new wide-ranging survey from US News and World Report.
The influential age-group set Canada apart from the rest when asked questions on how closely they associated countries with a range of characteristics.
Canada’s performance when it came to citizenship and business-related factors pushed it to the top of the pile for 18 to 35-year-olds, and into second when responses from all age groups were taken into account.
Germany, the UK, Japan and the US rounded out the top five.
The survey produced results in a number of categories, as well as the overall league table. Canada was ranked second best place to live, fifth for starting a career and sixth for dating.
« Millennials will play a significant role in shaping national economies worldwide for decades to come, » said Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer of US News.
« Capturing their perceptions is valuable in helping to determine the current and future possibilities of economic, political and cultural success in nations. »
The survey asked for responses from 16,000 people around the globe, 6,000 of which were in the millennial age bracket.
