The U.S. ranks 1st in freedom of international mobility

According to the World Bank, fifty-two countries require visas from U.S. citizens traveling to those countries, which makes the United States rank first in the freedom to travel abroad.

    Just curious- which World Bank data set exactly did you pull this out of? I want to see where Canada stands. And since the difference between the most mobile countries is only a matter of one or two visas, which countries does this extra mobility actually given Americans easier access to.

    I can’t find the exact link right now, but I took a look at my data set, and Canadians need visas to visit 57 countries. I don’t have the data to figure out exactly which countries require visas from which other countries.
