New study about the attitude to science & health all over the world

Quote:
The Wellcome Global Monitor is the world’s largest study into how people around the world think and feel about science and major health challenges. It surveys over 140,000 people from more than 140 countries.
Wellcome Global Monitor 2018 (wellcome.ac.uk, June 19, 2019)

It has made Danes claim that Danes are the world’s greatest ”science enthusiasts” (videnskab.dk, June 25, 2019), but maybe we're just more conceited than others in this respect:

Quote:
Share of people who say they know a lot about science, by gender and the highest level of science education they have obtained (%)
Highest Level of Science Education

The study has intersting information about the attitude to vaccinations around the world. Also: How much does the world trust medical experts and vaccines?
