Almost a quarter of French people (22%) had the opportunity to see poverty and underdevelopment from a geographical immersion in a developing country (happening sometime in the last ten years).
Political orientation, age, or gender hardly influence these numbers.
Rather, the level of income and education are strong defining factors.
Among the French who say they have traveled to a developing country in the last ten years, we find:
9% of French non-graduates against 37% of French holders with a bac + 5 (minimum),
17% of French reaching less than 20000 € / year against an average of 57% of French declaring to earn more than 100000 € / year.
This data comes from our survey conducted by the YouGov Institute and piloted by the research team at University College London and Birmingham University as part of the project Aid Attitudes Tracker which measures the evolution of opinions and behaviors on issues of international solidarity in four countries.
