This Map Shows How People Around The World Think About America

The Pew Research Global Attitudes Project tracks public opinion around the world on a number of subjects. In early 2013, they asked people in 39 countries whether they had a favourable or unfavorable view of the United States. We rendered this data in the following map:

Some highlights from the survey:

  • 81% of Americans approve of their country, but three countries have a higher opinion of the U.S. — Ghana (83%), Israel (83%), and the Philippines (85%).
  • Pakistanis hold the lowest opinion of the U.S. out of the surveyed countries with an approval rating of just 11%.
  • The Western Hemisphere mostly approves of the United States, with only Argentina (41%) holding an approval rating under 50% among surveyed countries in the Americas.
