Millennials have chosen Canada as the world's best country, according to a recent survey by the U.S. News & World Report.

The U.S. media company, which is specialized in data analysis and rankings, has surveyed over 6,000 millennials to find out which countries they thought were the best.

Behind Canada in the top spot came Germany in second and the U.K. in third. 

The United States took the fifth spot, behind Japan.

Millennials have chosen Canada for being economically and politically stable and for having a well-developed public education system. But also for its excellent quality of life and good nature.

"Canada's expansive wilderness to the north plays a large role in Canadian identity, as does the country's reputation of welcoming immigrants," the U.S. News & World Report said in their country overview. "Canadians pride themselves in encouraging all of their citizens to honor their own cultures."

But while Canada took the top spot overall, young people chose other countries when it came to more specific categories.

Australia was voted as the best country to actually live in, while Brazil is thought to be the best country for dating.
