On Wednesday, U.S. News & World Report -- along with BAV Group and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania -- published the results of its Best Countries ranking for 2020.
For the fourth year in a row, Switzerland took the top spot on the list.
"The goal of the Best Countries report is to understand how global perceptions are related to investment, foreign trade and tourism of a nation," David Reibstein, professor of marketing at the Wharton School, said in a statement.
The survey also looked at how people perceived human rights, diversity, sustainability and trustworthiness in the countries.
Aside from the overall ranking of best country, the report also found the best countries within nine other categories including: “Adventure,” “Citizenship,” “Cultural Influence,” “Entrepreneurship,” “Heritage,” “Movers,” “Open for Business,” “Power” and “Quality of Life.”
The U.S. made the top of the “Power” list and third place on the “Entrepreneurship” list.
