Over three-quarters of participants are from developing countries– nearly half (48%) from low HDI countries; another 29% from medium HDI countries
57% of participants completed the survey using pen and paper and are likely to be amongst the poorest (without internet access, mobile phones). Of those, 67% were from rural areas.
Nearly two-thirds (64%) of participants are under the age of 30 and hence are the decision makers of tomorrow
45% of participants have low education levels and are likely to be poor (education is used as a proxy for income in most surveys) — 21% of participants didn’t finish primary school; another 24% only finished primary school
