Which is the Best Country to be an Immigrant in 2017?
According to ‘U.S. News & World Reports,’ Sweden is now the best country to be an immigrant. Canada, Switzerland, Australia and Germany are the other countries that top the list after Sweden.
Despite being home to the world’s largest immigrant population, due to Trump’s recent travel ban on immigrants from certain countries and rising tensions over immigrants in the U.S., the U.S. has got a lower ranking. America is the seventh best country to be an immigrant.
Over 21,000 people across the globe were surveyed. The survey used four factors, “economically stable,” “good job market,” “income equality” and “is a place I would live” to determine the best country to be an immigrant. These factors were used to create the list of countries.
Sweden has a strong social welfare system which helped the country to become the best country to be an immigrant. Sweden has also opened its doors to refugees and this is another reason to get the first place.
