Pew Global Research have just published some new data from their Global Attitudes Survey, collected in early 2014. There were seven African countries among the sample, including Tanzania.
Let me start with a simple chart, with a conclusion that is perhaps surprising: More Tanzanians (90%) see corruption as a “very big problem” than in any of the other six African countries surveyed – more than in neighbouring countries, Kenya and Uganda, and more, even, than in Nigeria.
The next two charts show the same data, but this time you can play with it yourself. First, you can see how perception of different problems compares between the seven countries. You can choose which “problem” to focus on from the drop-down menu in the chart.
And second, you can see how perception of different problems varies within each country. Again, make your selection (of country this time) from the drop-down list.
I’m sure there are some more stories in this data. What can you find?
