The study, conducted by U.S. News in partnership with Y&R’s BAV and Wharton, gives Canada the number two ranking on a list of 80 countries, only trailing this year’s #1 country, Switzerland.

From the Daily Hive:
Interestingly, Switzerland was not previously ranked when the inaugural list of the world’s best countries was released last year at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Meanwhile, last year’s #1 country, Germany, fell back to the 4th overall spot in 2017.Canada also came in #1 for Quality of Life for the second straight year as well as #4 for Citizenship (it was #2 in citizenship in 2016).

The methodology behind the rankings can be broken down as follows:
A set of 65 country attributes – terms that can be used to describe a country and that are also relevant to the success of a modern nation – were identified. Attributes by nation were presented in a survey of more than 21,000 people from across the globe. Participants assessed how closely they associated an attribute with a nation.

The attributes were then placed into nine subcategories which combined to create the best country rankings. 

Here are the 25 best countries to live in the world in 2017:
1. Switzerland
2. Canada
3. United Kingdom
4 .Germany
5. Japan
6. Sweden
7. United States of America
8. Australia
