In December YouGov gathered open-ended nominations from panellists across 30 countries, asking them simply: “Thinking about people alive in the world today, which [man or woman] do you most admire?” These nominations were then used to compile a list of the 20 men and 20 women who received the most nominations and were nominated in at least 2 countries. An additional 10 popular local figures were added to the lists for individual countries.
In January we then used the lists to poll each of the 30 countries asking two questions: “who do you truly admire?”, where respondents could make multiple selections, and “who do you MOST admire?”, where they could only pick one. These two numbers were combined into a percentage share of admiration, displayed to the right of each name.
Emma was ranked the 13th most admired woman worldwide.
She was named in all the 30 countries' lists:
#3 in Singapore
#4 in Philippines
#6 in Thailand
#7 in Hong Kong
#10 in Malaysia and Australia
#11 in New Zealand
#13 in Indonesia, Argentina, and Mexico
#14 in Canada and Sweden
#16 in Pakistan
#17 in China
#18 in the UK, South Africa, Spain and France
#19 in the US and Germany
#20 in Russia
#21 in Brazil
#22 in Denmark, Norway and Finland
