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.
