A 2017 study found that a large number of people in some of the world's most developed nations are ignorant of a lot of important topics.
The Perils of Perception 2017 study by Ipsos MORI assessed the perception of 29,133 people around the world on topics concerning their nation and others.
The subjects included murder and suicide rates, deaths at the result of terrorism, teenage pregnancy, foreign-born prisoners and health issues such as vaccinations and diabetes.

Other issues covered in the interviews included religion, consumption of sugar and alcohol and the percentage of people using Facebook and smartphones.
Results showed that people in nearly all of the 38 nations which took part in the study were ignorant of the aforementioned topics but some were worse than others. 
The compiled data showed that Scandinavians had the best idea of what was happening at home and abroad as Denmark, Norway and Sweden were all found to be the most accurate, with the Swedes coming out on top.
At the other end of the spectrum, the bottom three in descending order were The Philippines, Brazil and South Africa. 
Great Britain placed ninth in accuracy with the United States down in sixteenth, behind Russia, Germany and China.
There have been some significant changes in the results of this study since the 2016 version
Back then, India was found to be the most ignorant while the Netherlands was considered to be the least ignorant. 
In 2017, India rose up four places while the Netherlands slipped an astonishing 19 places.
Individuals who took part in the survey were aged between 16 and 64 with the interviews taking place between September 28 and October 19.
