In terms of helping out your neighbor, the U.S. is (almost) No. 1.

The U.S. is the second most generous country in the world, according to the U.K.-based CAF America, an international nonprofit organization that’s part of the World Giving Index and that promotes effective giving and philanthropy worldwide. Myanmar came in first place with an overall score of 66% — meaning 70% of people (up from 66% last year) say they have helped a stranger, volunteered their time or given money to a charity in the past year — while the U.S. came in second place with a score of 61%, unchanged from 2015.
