1 The Economic Pulse of the World Citizens in 25 Countries Assess the Current State of their Country s Economy for a Total Global Perspective The Economic Pulse

2 These are the findings of the Wave 45 an Ipsos survey conducted between May 7 th to May 21 st, SURVEY METHOD COUNTRIES SAMPLE WEIGHTING The survey instrument is conducted monthly in 25 core countries around the world via the Ipsos Online Panel system. The countries reporting herein are Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and the United States. For the results of the survey presented herein, an international sample of 18,513 adults age in the US and Canada, and age in all other countries, were interviewed. Approximately individuals participated on a country by country basis via the Ipsos Online Panel with the exception of Argentina, Belgium, Hungary Indonesia, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden and Turkey, where each have a sample approximately In China, India and South Africa the samples are slightly more educated and educated compared to the average citizen. Weighting was then employed to balance demographics and ensure that the sample's composition reflects that of the adult population according to the most recent country Census data, and to provide results intended to approximate the sample universe. A survey with an unweighted probability sample of this size and a 100% response rate would have an estimated margin of error of +/- 3.1 percentage points for a sample of 1,000 and an estimated margin of error of +/- 4.5 percentage points 19 times out of 20 per country of what the results would have been had the entire population of adults in that country had been polled. All sample surveys and polls may be subject to other sources of error, including, but not limited to coverage error, and measurement error. The Economic Pulse 2

3 Analytic Components There are three analytic components that make up the findings of this monthly Economic Pulse report. Each question is tracked and analyzed from questions dealing with: The currently perceived macroeconomic state of the respondent s country: Thinking about our economic situation, how would you describe the current economic situation in [insert country]? Is it very good, somewhat good, somewhat bad or very bad? The currently perceived state of the local economy: Rate the current state of the economy in your local area using a scale from 1 to 7, where 7 means a very strong economy today and 1 means a very weak economy. A six month outlook for the local economy: Looking ahead six months from now, do you expect the economy in your local area to be much stronger, somewhat stronger, about the same, somewhat weaker, or much weaker than it is now?

5 Global Economic Assessment = Stable This wave represents both stability and improvement for the current global aggregate of 25 countries. The aggregate has improved three points to 39% of global citizens agree their current national economic situation is good. This improvement is driven by the addition of Norway (98%) without Norway, the aggregate assessment would remain unchanged at 36%. Two regions show noteworthy improvements this wave: Europe (+8 to 32%) and North America (+3 to 48%). In Europe, much of the improvement is driven by the addition of Norway but Great Britain is also showing an eight-point improvement to 21%, an important uptick for the country and region. In North America, Canada rebounds to 63% (up 3 points) after last month s dip while the United States continues its upward momentum (33%, +2 pts). The Middle East and Africa remains unchanged at 53% as a region while Asia-Pacific (43%) and Latin America (33%) both have gone down one point. The Economic Pulse 5

6 New Country: Norway welcomes Norway as the 25 th country to regularly field on a monthly basis on the international survey syndicate. The Scandinavian country has the second-highest GDP per capita and economic sentiment reflects this. Our poll finds 52% of those in Norway would describe the current economic situation in their country as very good while 46% consider it to be somewhat good. A small minority rate the national economic situation to be bad 1% say very bad, 2% somewhat bad. These decidedly positive views pull the global economic aggregate up three points higher this month than they would have been without Norway in the mix. The next-strongest country in terms of national economic sentiment is historic frontrunner Saudi Arabia, a full 17 points lower. On local economic assessments, six in ten (63%) Norwegians indicate the current state in their local economy is strong, compared with a global average of 28% (27% with the exclusion of Norway in the aggregate). Looking ahead six months from now, only 7% indicate they expect their local economy to be stronger, perhaps an indication of a feeling that the economy is strong but stable (Foreign Policy Magazine rates it the world s most well-functioning and stable country). In comparison, the global aggregate sits at 23% - unchanged with or without Norway - on this measure. The Economic Pulse 6

7 Global Average of National Economic Assessment (39%) Up Three Points The average global economic assessment of national economies surveyed in 25 countries edges higher as 39% of global citizens rate their national economies to be good with the inclusion of the newest country, Norway. (The aggregate is unchanged at 36% without Norway.) Norway has the highest national economic average of 98%, followed by Saudi Arabia (81%), Sweden (72%), and China (66%). The lowest average continues to be with European countries, with France at all time low of 3%, followed by Italy (4%), Spain (4%), and at some distance: Hungary (13%), and Poland (16%). Countries with the greatest improvements in this wave: South Africa (31%, 8pts), Great Britain (21%, 8pts), Japan (27%, 7pts), Hungary (13%, 6pts), Canada (63%, 4pts) and South Korea (17%, 3pts). Countries with the greatest declines: Australia (54%, -8pts), Turkey (48%, -7pts), Indonesia (41%, -7pts), Argentina (25%, -6pts) and Germany (62%, -5pts). The Economic Pulse 7

8 Global Average of Local Economic Assessment (28%) Up One Point When asked to asses their local economies, three in ten (28%) agree the state of the current economy in their local area is good on the global aggregate level. Compared to last sounding, the aggregate is unchanged without the inclusion of Norway and reflects a one-point improvement with the inclusion of Norway. Norway (63%) moves ahead of Saudi Arabia (57%) with the highest average of Local Economic Assessment. Not far behind are Sweden (53%), China (48%), and Germany (43%). The lowest ranking countries on this measure are France (6%), Spain (7%), Italy (8%), Hungary (9%), Japan (12%) and Poland (13%). Countries with the greatest improvements in this wave: Saudi Arabia (57%, 4pts), Sweden (53%, 4pts), India (, 4pts) and South Africa (24%, 3pts). Countries with the greatest declines: France (6%, -6pts), Australia (37%, -5pts), Indonesia (29%, -5pts), Germany (43%, -4pts), Turkey (36%, -4pts) and Mexico (, -4pts). The Economic Pulse 8

9 Global Average of Future Outlook for Local Economy Unchanged: 23% One quarter (23%) expect that their local economy will be stronger six months from now, consistent with last month sounding. A strong majority of Brazilians (64%) continue to indicate they predict their local economies will be stronger in the next six months. A gap persists in between Brazilian ratings and the rest of the highest-ranking countries: Saudi Arabia (51%), India (46%), China (39%), Mexico (39%) and Argentina (36%). Small minorities in France (3%), Belgium (6%), Norway (7%), Hungary (8%), Poland (), and Sweden () expect their future local economies will be stronger. Countries with the greatest improvements in this wave: Japan (28%, 5pts), Spain (16%, 4pts), Italy (15%, 3pts), Great Britain (12%, 3pts) and Turkey (27%, 2pts). Countries with the greatest declines: Brazil (64%, -4pts), Germany (14%, -4pts), Poland (, -3pts), Sweden (, -3pts), Argentina (36%, -2pts) and Indonesia (33%, -2pts). The Economic Pulse 9
