 Interactive: Global Views on Morality

The Pew Research Center asked people in 40 countries what they thought about eight topics often discussed as moral issues: extramarital affairs, gambling, homosexuality, abortion, premarital sex, alcohol consumption, divorce, and using contraceptives. For each issue, respondents were asked whether this is morally acceptable, morally unacceptable, or not a moral issue. The Global Morality Interactive highlights the findings and allows users to sort the data in a variety of ways.
