Survey: Acceptance of homosexuality by society in 39 countries

Some key points from the survey:

• Attitudes about homosexuality have been fairly stable in recent years, except in South Korea, the United States and Canada, where the percentage saying homosexuality should be accepted by society has grown by at least ten percentage points since 2007.

• Acceptance of homosexuality is particularly widespread in countries where religion is less central in people’s lives.

• Wealthier countries tend to be more accepting. In contrast, in poorer countries with high levels of religiosity, few believe homosexuality should be accepted by society.
