I completely agree with you Davy On Canada. My spouse is Canadian and we live there half the year. I love having a dual citizenship with Canada. It's better for traveling too when I have my Canadian Passport. I get better treatment when travelling aboard.

I find it interesting that Indians, while some of the most broadly spread emigrants in the world, are rated the most xenophobic when it comes to who they don't want living next door.

Wait, I thought the US was the worstest place in the world? Nah, the US is pretty sweet. In my experience, it's inhabited by some of the damn finest humans on the planet.
Canada`s better though. Heck, I like Canada so much, I emigrated here. It`s basically America but without the (sometimes) bullsh*t.

On #6, I think the key is that this is measuing incomes below the "federal poverty level." I don't think the statistics measure the benefits you receive if you`re below the federal poverty level. If you combine income plus the value of the benefits, perhaps the picture changes?
Federal poverty level in 2014 ranges between $11,670 for a household of one to $40,090 for a household of eight.
