The global leader and country trajectory data is based on a seven-day moving average of all adults in a given country, with a margin of error of between +/- 1-4 per cent.
In the United States, the average sample size is around 45,000. In other countries, the sample size ranges from roughly 500-5,000. All interviews are conducted online among nationally representative samples of adults. In India, the sample is representative of the literate population.
Surveys are weighted in each country by age, gender, region and, in certain countries, education breakdowns based on official government sources. In the United States, surveys are also weighted by race and ethnicity. Respondents complete these surveys in languages appropriate for their countries.
