You kind of compare the 1% of countries to USA. But USA is simply too big compared to small countries. I don't really know any stats, but I think USA would fare better if you compared all of USA to all of Europe, or say an average new england state with a comparable country.

An immigrant country like the USA will always have large imbalances, because people come from all over the place.
