Full Survey Results

Between late 2018 and spring 2019, Arab Barometer conducted a survey of 10 countries and the Palestinian territories about a wide range of topics. 25,407 participants were surveyed. In the BBC's publication of the survey results, the results of the question on homosexuality only included six countries (plus Palestinian territories). Equaldex's listing refers to "Palestine," however, the survey only included responses from the West Bank. The exact question text was not published. Only the "Yes" results were published, so Equaldex groups all possible other answers as "No / Unsure / Did Not Answer").
