The full 2018 Best Countries List surveyed 21,000 business leaders, informed elites, and general citizens to discover how 80 countries are perceived on a global scale for a range of criteria, from economic influence to citizenship and quality of life.

The Best Countries for women were given a score out 10 on these five attributes: Human rights, gender quality, income equality, progress, and safety.
