Based on the responses, those traits were further grouped into nine sub-categories such as quality of life and entrepreneurship. Germany no longer leads in entrepreneurship For the past three years, Germany headed the entrepreneurship category, but fell to the number two position in 2019, with Japan taking the number one seat.
