Our largest AnxietyIndex study to date, this report examines the levels, intensity and drivers of anxiety across 27 markets in Western Europe (Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the U.K.), Eastern Europe (the Czech Republic and Russia), the Middle East and North Africa (Egypt, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and South Africa), North Asia (China, Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea), South Asia (Australia, India, Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand), North America (Canada and the U.S.) and South America (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Mexico).
Data was collected from Oct. 1-10, 2012, using SONAR™, JWT’s proprietary online research tool. We polled 225 adults aged 18-plus in each market. Data is weighted by age and gender to census figures in each market, except where Internet penetration is less than 40%. Low-penetration markets (Egypt, Pakistan, South Africa, China, India, Indonesia and Thailand) are weighted in accordance with the Internet population in these markets.
