Headline results from the April 2010 survey:
- Most people think their health is good and that their diet is healthy. Diet is considered the most important factor for promoting or maintaining health.
- Most valued services provided by government are health care and education. Aid to developing countries is valued least.
- There was great concern about the earthquake in Haiti and its impact on local people, although some scepticism about the accuracy of media reporting.
- Immediate humanitarian assistance after the earthquake was considered to have been effective, while there was much more scepticism about the effectiveness of long-term assistance.
- Most respondents appreciated the interdependencies between the life of people in the UK and what happens in other parts of the world, especially relating to the economy.
- Around a half of respondents thought the time had come to rethink how the world is governed.
