GLOBAL @DVISOR: POWER TO THE PEOPLE?
Methodology
These are the findings of a Global @dvisor survey into attitudes towards feminism and gender equality around the world. The survey
instrument is conducted monthly in 24 countries via the Ipsos Online Panel system. The countries reporting herein are Argentina, Australia,
Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Great Britain, Germany, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Peru, Poland, Russia, Serbia, South
Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and the United States of America.
For the results of the survey presented herein, an international sample of 17,551 adults aged 18-64 in the US and Canada, and age 16-64 in
all other countries, were interviewed between January 20th and February 3rd, 2017. Approximately 1000+ individuals participated in each
country with the exception of Argentina, Belgium, Hungary, India, Mexico, Peru, Poland, Russia, Serbia, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden
and Turkey, where each have a sample approximately 500+. The precision of Ipsos online polls are calculated using a credibility interval with
a poll of 1,000 accurate to +/- 3.5 percentage points and of 500 accurate to +/- 5.0 percentage points. For more information on the Ipsos
use of credibility intervals, please visit the Ipsos website.
In countries where internet penetration is approximately 60% or higher the data output generally reflects the overall population. 16 of the
24 countries surveyed generate nationally representative samples in their countries (Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Canada, France,
Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Poland, Serbia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, and United States).
Brazil, China, India, Mexico, Peru, Russia, South Africa and Turkey produce a national sample that is more urban & educated, and with
higher incomes than their fellow citizens.
Where results do not sum to 100, this may be due to computer rounding, multiple responses or the exclusion of don't knows or not stated
responses.
Data are weighted to match the profile of the population.
