In April 2019, the Pew Research Center released this extensive report that examines views on diversity, gender equality, the role of religion, and family ties in 27 countries around the world. This 45-page report, which is based on Pew's Spring 2018 Global Attitudes Survey, asked 30,133 people to give their assessment of how their country has changed in the past 20 years with regards to these four social and cultural aspects, as well as whether they think those changes are good or bad for their country. A median of nearly 70 percent of respondents said that diversity and gender equality has increased, while a median of nearly 60 percent said that family ties had weakened. Regarding religion, a median of 27 percent said that religion now plays a more important role in their country, while about 37 percent said religion plays a less important role. For all four aspects, roughly 20 percent of respondents perceived no change. Readers interested in more details can view or download the report in full at the link above, where they will also find helpful graphs and the report's top-line questionnaire results. This report was authored by Jacob Poushter, Janell Fetterolf, and Christine Tamir.
