Released: Jul 26, 2023

We are proud to announce that we are presenting the first release of our Annual Report on Economic Confidence. It provides a multi-country view of public sentiment about the state of nations and their economies as well as household financial outlooks.


Nearly 18,000 people were surveyed across 26 countries during February, March and April, 2023 —a nationally representative sample of 500 to 1,000 adults was interviewed in each country. Among the key results: 


  • Concern about climate change is high across most countries with an overall average of eight in ten saying they are at least somewhat worried.
  • In almost every country, climate change is seen as a more serious problem for the planet, than for the country, and least so in the local area where people live. Many people look at climate change as a distant problem, not something of direct local concern or relevance – which may be limiting people’s willingness to act. An exception is Turkey, where concern is high locally, nationally and globally.
  • Asked how important the development of renewable energy should be for their country, overall, 50% consider this a top priority. That reaches eight in ten in Mexico and Panama, and two in three in Brazil, Columbia, India, Romania and Italy. Small proportions rate this a top priority in Bulgaria, Turkey, Lithuania, and the Netherlands.
