Global awareness and the Gallup World Poll

Global awareness is one of UC’s graduate attributes ,and just one way you can become more globally aware is to take a look at the Gallup World Poll as it allows you to see how well Aotearoa New Zealand does relative to other countries on a wide variety of indicators.

Some examples of such comparison can be found in Associate Professor Tom Coupe’s latest column for interest.co.nz, here.

In the column, Professor Coupe discusses  Aotearoa New Zealand’s performance in terms of housing affordability, public transportation infrastructure, gender relations, satisfaction with education, life and government.

For all this and more, check out the Gallup World Poll Database.
