Global Barometer Survey Wave 2 (2011-2013): Human Security

The Global Barometer Survey Wave 2: Human Security measure uses three items related to safety and security from the Global Barometer Survey Wave 2, a global survey that aims to explore citizens’ attitudes toward democracy, governance and political reform. Perceived safety in the place where they live, experience of accidents, theft, and violence are captured here. Navigational aspects (i.e. skip-out patterns and next question sequences) have not been included on this page but can be viewed on the original questionnaire located here.
