The most ignorant nation on face of Earth

As the year 2016 is about conclude it is leaving an appreciation for the world’s largest democracy India, that it is the world’s most ignorant nation on the planet, according to Index of Ignorance 2016.

India left every nation behind in ignorance, while the nation ranked the second ignorant nation last year 2015. Formerly, Brazil was at the top of the list but it is outranked by India.

The ranking is result of Ipsos Perils of Perception of Survery or so-called “Index of Ignorance” which “highlights how wrong the public across 40 countries are about key global issues and features of the population in their country.”

The results of survey is as follows;

Rank Country
1 India
2 China
3 Taiwan
4 South Africa
5 US
6 Brazil
7 Thailand
8 Singapore
9 Turkey
10 Indonesia

The good news is that Pakistan is not in the list, which is a sign that Pakistan is a nation who has common sense in common and can make its way in the developed countries if the human resources used wisely.

To figure out the state of the world’s great uninformed nation, Ipsos MORI, a British based market research firm, conducted interviews of 27,250 people between September and November this year.

“Across all 40 countries in the study, each population gets a lot wrong. We are often most incorrect on factors that are widely discussed in the media, such as the proportion of our population that are Muslims and wealth inequality,” said managing director of the Ipsos MORI Social Research Institute, Bobby Duffy.

“We know from previous studies that this is partly because we over-estimate what we worry about.”
