Full Survey Results

From 2017 to 2020, the World Values Survey surveyed thousands of individuals in many countries about various topics. In this question, respondents were asked: "Do you agree, disagree or neither agree nor disagree with the following statements?: Homosexual couples are as good parents as other couples." and were able to choose "agree strongly," "agree," "neither agree nor disagree," "disagree," or "disagree strongly." Equaldex categorized "agree" and "agree strongly" as "agree" and categorized "disagree" or "disagree strongly" as "disagree." Respondents who selected "neither agree nor disagree" and those that did not answer are omitted from Equaldex's visualization of this data.
