In 2013, the U.S. devoted 29% of its economy to social spending, as compared to 25% for Sweden and 21% for Canada. Among the 34 advanced nations comprising the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, only France spends more than the U.S. Although the U.S. ranks 23rd in government social spending, it ranks 2nd in total social spending, because private social spending in the U.S. is much higher than in any other nation.
