What Do Countries Fear the Most?
What Would Life Be Like Without Fear?
In April 2015, Chapman University polled a random sampling of 1,541 adults and asked them one simple question: what do you fear the most? Researchers asked the participants how much they feared 88 different things, ranging from measles to war to identity theft, and everything in between. People were asked to rate their level of fear for each from 1 (not afraid) to 4 (very afraid). Fears were broken into categorized domains, such as crime, government, and man-made disasters. The fears at the top of the list were corruption, cyber terrorism, corporate tracking of personal information, and terrorist attacks. You can find the complete list of fears here.
