United States (USA) vs Canada – Which country is more liveable? (Animated)


Two of the closest countries in the world today are the United States of America and their northern neighbor Canada, or as some of my American friends call it America’s hat. While these countries share a massive 5,500 Mile border there are many distinct differences that affect the livability of these nations This is Alex from Lifelong learners. I have family in both America and Canada and today I thought it will be fun to objectively compare America and Canada to see which country is more livable So looking at education, employment, health, happiness, and security we’ll compare these countries Both America and Canada has strong education system that are better than Global averages the Elementary school PISA rankings score America in the top 50% with a range of 25 out of 70 Canada however comes in the top ten with a rank of seven. It’s important to consider higher Education Canada performed strongly with twenty Canadian colleges in the top 500 in the world America however dominates the top of the list with 41 colleges in the top hundred compared to Canada with just three Let’s look at affordability of higher education. The average annual cost of college in the u.s. Is 52% of the median annual individual income more than twice as much as Canada or 22%! While America has better colleges the affordability is much lower. Both of these factors impact on the proportion of young adults completing higher education with 59% of 25 to 34 year old Canadians completing tertiary education Compared to 47% in the u.s. In terms of the economy America is by far the largest in the world Employment levels are high in both America and Canada with an unemployment rate of 4.4% in America compared to Canada’s 6.6% The average wage in America also outperforms Canada with a wage of just over 60,000 compared to Canada’s 48,000 the tax Rate varies both between and within Canada and America with different rates based on income and location.

At 39.6% compared 33% in Canada Number o–‘s cost-of-living Index ranks America as the more expensive country with a rank of #18 out of 122 countries compared to Canada at #27 While America has a much stronger economy better universities and higher wages Canada Performs better in the health area Adult obesity rates are terrible in both countries with 28% in Canada and 33.7% in America maternal mortality that is the number of Mother’s dying per 100,000 live births is quite Low in both countries with seven per hundred thousand in Canada and 14 per 100,000 in America infant mortality the number of children per thousand live births who die before reaching the age of five is similar in both countries with 6.5 per 1000 in America and 4.9 per 1000 in Canada however with hundreds of thousands of births in Canada alone each year this more difference in the rate accounts for a large difference in the absolute number of deaths/ Life expectancy figures shows that the average Canadian lives to 81.7 years Compared to the average American at 79.6 years But as they say a good life is not measured by the number of breaths but the number of moments that take your breath away on the world happiness Index Americans rank a respectable #21 out of 141 Countries however Canada creeps into the top ten with a rank of #9 making Canada one of the happiest places on Earth the rate of Homelessness is relatively high in both countries, but America at 0.18 percent of the population is clearly better than Canada at 0.44% suicide rates also show that America is infront of Canada with nine point nine suicides per 100,000 compared to ten point one in Canada However the death rate by drug overdose shows American loses a hundred and ninety five people per million each year Compared to one hundred and one in Canada Happiness is impacted by safety and security and here there are some large gaps Canada performed strongly in safety and security with a global terrorism index rating of 2.5 compared to 4.9 in America Homicide rates a hundred thousand people are also lower in Canada with 1.7 per 100,000 Compared to 5.4 in America the incarceration rate in Canada Continues to indicate that Canada is a safer place to live with only a hundred and fourteen prisoners per hundred thousand people in the population compared to 666 in America, and The Global Peace Index indicates a large gap between Canada and America with Canada ranked in the top ten at number eight and America in the bottom proportion ranked 141 out of 163 countries So while America has higher wages, better universities, lower unemployment. lower Homelessness and a lower suicide rate Canada is a happier and safer country with healthier people and a lower tax rate Which country do you think is more livable leave a comment below and don’t forget to subscribe and give a thumbs up thanks for watching?

  1. I guess it depends as a Canadian I say Canada on the safety factor and health care and education but if you go by the cost of living the USA as everything from rent to clothes and food is actually more expensive in Canada both Countries have there downside

  2. Get hurt or sick and the answer is pretty clear. The GREED in the US is astounding, especially in the pharma industry.

  3. I've always admired Canada, and if Trump wins again in 2020 or declares himself president-for-life, it gets even more appealing. My one hitch is being elderly and living almost entirely on US Social Security and a very small state pension, what if Trump cuts them off to people who flee the US to get away from him.

  4. I think that Canada is more liveable ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ
    From Tunisia โœŒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ณ

  5. I'm proud to be Canadian! Any emigrants out there looking for a great place to resettle should pick Canada over the USA. I don't know why Canada is still underappreciated on the world stage. I think our winters are what scare people away.

  6. USA only looks good from outside.
    But Canada is much safer and people there are very friendly and welcoming to other cultures.
    As someone from Asian country I would definitely choose Canada over US Anyday.

  7. If you want the money and work go to United States. If you wanna just live in a little bit more peaceful place go to Canada.

  8. But each region of each country is different, in California it is wildly different from Maine and same for Yukon and Nova Scotia

  9. Nothing beats up US. Things that one can achieve here cannot be achieved anywhere in the world, but one must follow certain rules otherwise one can lose in a flash all his work of a lifetime.

  10. I respect your statement, but Canada may be safer because, Canada only has a population of 37.06 million people but the U.S.A has 327.2 million and Canada has a smaller military than the US, Canada has 40,000 total armed troops and the US has over 2 million armed troops. The USA's school system is lower because of the mass of population. The USA's drug problem is caused by people outside the country illegally coming in and selling drugs to dealers. The incarceration rate is larger than Canada's because of the population, and that is the same with the peace index.

  11. IF YOU MOVE TO THE USA – don't live in major cities ! Our cities have become cesspools of Welfare cheats, street gangs, drug addiction, stressful jobs, and unhappy people. The higher wages you get there do NOT cover the higher cost of living, taxes, and fees. American cities are like giant TREADMILLS, and its people are like HAMSTERS that run on the treadmill – until they drop dead !

  12. Canada is a good country to settle down, start a family and best healthcare in all north america and nicer people. America is a good country to wreck havoc, fuck woman, do drugs, shoot a few people, piss on the side walk and do lots of cocaine of a strippers tits while burning the US flag as is your lawful right.

  13. I've lived in both countries. I love the USA but Ill be honest Canada is saner! Personally I find American's friendlier and more helpful in general, while Canadians keep to themselves. An American will tell you what they think to your face while Canadians will pretend to be polite , then say what they think behind your back. Canadians are not so profit driven and are more concerned with fairness. Of course this is all generalizing as people are people and it always depends on who you meet and associate with

  14. Personally I went to the USA 4 times and I didn't feel dangerous at all.
    It was such an awesome places indeed ๐Ÿ˜€

    Especially Chicago xD

  15. I just went through the Vancouver Airport on July 6th 2019, They were so unorganized, They had everyone doing the Disneyland back and fourth over 2 floors, for a 1/4 of a mile, for no Reason.ย  Retarted monkeys on crack would be better organized. EVERYONE! was mad, When the security and airport people were asked, why the 1/4 mile serpentine, they said "Don't know" and just walked away. I will NEVER! go to Canada and canceled meetings to build an office building and expand my business into Canada, I have been all over the World, Thailand, China, the Philippines, Africa and every airport in the USA is better organized then the Vancouver airport. I know some are going to dismiss my statement and go to Vancouver. You will be thinking, " I should have listened to the guy on youtube" , If you go on a date and you are kicked in the Ass, spit in the face and treated like an Escaped Eboli, Drug smuggling terrorists, are you going to give them a second chance, I hope not

  16. The biggest thing I took away from this is how.much less we pay in taxes but yet we are the ones with health care. How is that possible America, what are you wasting all that money on

  17. Both Countries are like paradise on Earth and plz don't mind (esp. Canadians as they don't like this comparison) very much the same.
    The only striking difference is that Canadians are more Refined….

  18. well Canada is where i live and its a better country cause… DOES CANADA FUCKING AIRSTRIKE IRAQ AND SYRIA?

  19. Have seen Homelessness in Seattle and L.A.Really?? And you wanna compare that to Canada no way! The shootings in schools๐Ÿ˜…

  20. Proudly Canadian donโ€™t forget that we are welcome everywhere we go the world love us …because we are friendly and polite ehhhh..

  21. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

  22. I love my country, USA. I love our neighbors up in the True North. We will always be there for you! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

  23. Canada is very attractive and we do like the people and the culture. I don't know how to deal with the weather. I suppose since all are so friendly and helpful, they would help us to learn.

  24. This is bullshit really you canโ€™t compare such a diverse country as the United States to Canada only 6/10 Americans are non white hispanics .

  25. Canada, eh? My home and native land. The best. But I do and always have loved the USA. She' s just going through a very rough period. But as she has always done, she will come out of it stronger than ever. As long as she votes Blue. God bless.

  26. Iโ€™m in New York right now and Iโ€™m in vacation. I prefer Canada because people are not nicer and it feels safer there.

  27. when you compare colleges you only look at "top colleges" no one can afford those 41 top colleges in US but in Canada college is almost free.

  28. Your figures are skewed with false data. USA won't count unemployed unless receiving unemployment benefits. So, the real number is SIGNIFICANTLY larger. USA makes no real effort to count the Homeless. When I worked in Silicone Valley, there were no signs of homeless. As of 2019, the streets are littered with trash, homeless, cars, mobile homes all for the homeless but not counted. Homeless is something this country tries to sweep under the carpet. Many of the 10 worst cities to live in the USA are in California. The homeless are easy to find. It is all over the place. Many cities have crews dedicated to cleaning up the mess made by the homeless. But, the homeless problem is so vast, they simply can't keep up. Canada is not deteriorating with entire cities dying. One area in the USA has nick name, "Rust Belt". Canada has no such equivalent. Regarding the USA, There is a saying, there are lies, true lies and Statistics. Canada's data is by in large accurate. That is not a claim the USA can make or cares to make. USA also has a Prison system for Profit. Those "for Profit" prisons lobby congress for money, creating a conflict of interest. US incarcerates 1/3rd of the worlds incarcerated.
    USA uses prisoners as "SLAVES". Slavery was not abolished but the modified. If forced slavery is refused, prisoners are punished with solitary confinement. USA has the Highest recidivist rate at about 72% while Norway tries to rehabilitate and is hugely humanitarian and a return rate of 17%. The numbers speak for themselves. USA is Inhumane while Norway is the opposite. Norway doesn't have slavery, nor a prison system for profit and neither does Canada. Repeat, the are LIES, DAMN, Lies and Statistics. Canada isn't bent towards lies. USA has made an art form out of lying, disinformation, with Statistics. It even gets worse. As a result of the Idiot elected President that gave a HUGE tax break exclusive the the very wealthy, the USA tax intake is now less than the Mandatory payments such as Social Security etc. Intake less than output equals Bankrupt. Canada can't claim that horrible fact. Sorry for saying this but USA is doomed and will cause a world wide financial collapse in about 6 years there about. All the signs are there. A measuring stick in the past that has been 100% accurate, is the automotive industry. When the automotive industry in the USA is growing the economy works. When the Automotive industry isn't doing well, recessions have followed 100% of the time. The US Auto industry is suffering Big time. The inevitable is clear due to the data.

  29. You canโ€™t forget the difference in money with Canada- say a chocolate bar is 1$ it would be slightly higher in Canada, idk how much higher but it would be about 2$ for the same chocolate bar as the one that was sold in the USA _(._.)_/
