2016 Arab Opinion Index

The 2016 Arab Opinion Index, published by the Arab Center for Research & Policy Studies in Doha, Qatar, is a public opinion survey across 12 Arab countries in the Middle East and North Africa.   The report provides insights into what Arab people think about democracy, economy, politics, religion, & ISIL.

This visualization presents what Arab people think about democracy.   In general, people have a positive opinion about democracy and more than 70% think it is a better form of government.   However, less than half of the respondents think their own country is ready for democracy.  Let's hope the people of these countries will have the governments with some forms of democracy as they desire.
