America's rating is getting lower among expats: how immigrants assess the quality of life in the USA

Over the years, the United States has gradually dropped in the rankings as the best destination for immigrants living and working abroad. They were in the bottom half of the list in 12, ranking 000th out of 2021 countries, according to the latest Expat Insider survey of over 34 people, conducted by the international expat community group Internations. The edition told in more detail CNBC.

In 2014, the United States ranked 5th out of 61 countries. Immigrants assessed how satisfied they were with the lifestyle, career, financial and cultural factors of their host country.

In the most recent survey, conducted in January 2021, immigrants were asked to rate their satisfaction across four main categories, including quality of life (such as a healthy environment and reliable infrastructure), ease of settlement (in particular, language barriers and the friendliness of local residents), personal finances. (say, access to affordable health care) and work abroad (among other things, job security and a stable local economy).

Among career-oriented immigrants, the United States rated job opportunities and career satisfaction highly—65% rated their job prospects positively, compared with 45% of immigrants worldwide. The only country to exceed these career satisfaction scores was Ireland.

But having big jobs is only part of the overseas experience. The US ranked lower than the global average on other work culture factors, with people reporting poor work-life balance, working hours and job security.

On the other hand, immigrants to the US said they were happy with their digital lives, such as Wi-Fi access and cashless payments, and adapted to their new American way of life by making friends with the locals.

But the country stands out for one of its main weaknesses: a poor healthcare system. The US performed worst in the health and well-being category, ranking 59th, and only 20% of those surveyed said they were satisfied with the availability of healthcare services in the country, compared to the global average of 61%.
