Sweden was ranked first on the list of countries best suited for immigrants, the US News & World Report said on Monday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the list, Sweden is followed by Canada, Switzerland, Australia, Germany, and Norway.

"Nordic nations – Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark – take four of the top 10 spots due in large part to favorable global perceptions of their economies and commitment to income equality," the press release reads.

The survey was conducted among 21,000 people from all around the world and asked whether they attributed each of 65 specific terms to the exact country. The attributes were combined into nine groups of Adventure, Citizenship, Cultural Influence, Entrepreneurship, Heritage, Movers, Open for Business, Power and Quality of Life.

Europe has faced an unprecedented influx of undocumented migrants from the Middle East and North Africa, fleeing their home countries to escape violence and poverty. Many migrants arrive by sea to the shores of maritime states and try to move further to wealthier European countries, such as the United Kingdom, Germany and Sweden.
