Checking the world’s pulse

Here is a great web site that gives you a view of public opinion around the globe!  WorldPublicOpinion.org gathers polling research results from all parts of the world and provides updates of public opinion on a variety of international policy issues.  While a good number of the survey findings are gathered by WorldPublicOpinion.org itself, the website also draws a lot of its data from a wide variety of sources around the world. Some examples of the topics explored include war and peace, human rights, climate change, views about different nations, etc.  

WorldPublicOpinion.org is published by the Program on International Policy Attitudes (PIPA), a non-profit research program affiliated with the University of Maryland, College Park.  According to the website itself, WoldPublicOpinion.org strives for a non-partisan point of view with content “dedicated to objective analysis of public opinion on international policy issues. ”
