(CNN)Donald Trump has promised to "make America great again."

Hillary Clinton thinks it's already an "exceptional nation."
How does the US measure up to the rest of the world on key issues that are important to voters? Here's what we found:


The economy is the top issue for voters, according to a July survey from the Pew Research Center. But if high unemployment rates were an issue during the 2008 and 2012 races (6.1% and 7.8%), that isn't the case this year.
America's jobless rate is hovering around 4.9%. It's the tenth best among countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) -- a group that includes the world's richest nations.
    But if the jobless rate is declining, income inequality is on the rise.
