The Pew Research Center for the People & the Press has initiated [begin] "The Pew Global Attitudes Project," a series of worldwide public-opinion surveys that will measure the impact of globalization, modernization, rapid technological and cultural change and recent terrorist events on the values and attitudes of 30,000 people in 25 countries worldwide. It will be conducted and released over the coming two years. [end] The first survey, focused on attitudes about U.S. post-11 September image and operations (particularly military), was restricted to "opinion leaders" (defined in "Survey Methodology") in select countries (Below geographic designations are Pew's) - United States Asia: Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korean and the Philippines Eastern Europe: Poland, Russia and the Ukraine Western Europe: France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom Middle East/Conflict Area: Egypt, Pakistan, Turkey and Uzbekistan Total Non-U.S.: All surveyed countries, plus Nigeria and South Africa Pew grouped States by region, and included an "All [surveyed] Islamic States" category. Regardless of whether or not one agrees with this premise, it is noteworthy that "Commenting on public sentiment in their countries, opinion leaders in most regions say U.S. policies are believed to be a principal cause of the Sept. 11 attack".
