Many European countries place a lot more importance and funding in education. If the statistics show that their children are better behaved, and grow into better behaved adults, it's not surprising. I think better behaved dogs come from better behaved owners.
Poor temperament due to irresponsible breeding in the US could be a factor as well, but they must have irresponsible breeders in European countries too, right? Maybe it's not rampant to the degree it is in the US? Anyone have stats on this?
