Global Views on Morality

In 2013, the Pew Research Center surveyed over 40,000 respondents in 40 countries regarding eight topics that are usually considered as moral issues. These topics, outlined in the table of contents, were then presented to respondents that had to determine whether the view the issue as totally acceptable, morally unacceptable, or not a moral issue.
