|To find out more about people’s perceptions of social and economic risks and how well they think their government reacts to those risks, the OECD recently launched a brand-new cross-national survey – the OECD Risks That Matter Survey.
From March to April 2018, the OECD spoke to a sample of 20 000 adults from 19 countries. People were asked about their top social and economic concerns, how well they think the government responds to their needs and expectations, and what policies they would like to see put in place in future.
This brief provides a first set of results from the OECD Risks That Matter Survey 2018, focusing mainly on respondents' perceptions of social and economic risks.
All figures plus a selection of background tables can be downloaded in Excel format here.
The first set of results from the OECD Risks That Matter Survey are now out. But we still want to hear from you! This mini online version of the survey contains a select few questions about the greatest risks facing you and your family, and how well you would cope with an income loss if you couldn’t access government financial support.
After answering these few short questions, you'll be able to see how your perceptions of social and economic risks compare to those expressed by other people from around the world.
