Poll: top two nations named 

As reported in an April 16 story on WBIW.com, Canada has taken the number one place — followed by Japan at number two — in the Best Countries 2021 report. 

Jointly produced by U.S. News and World Report, the BAV Group (a unit of global marketing agency VMLY&R) and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, the report is based on surveys of top business figures, university-educated people of at least middle class and members of the general population in 78 countries. Among the various categories of the report, Canada also ranked first for quality of life and social purpose, which is a new category this year.
