New international privacy survey

Researchers at Queens University, funded by SSHRC, had the pollsters at Ipsos Reid carry out a rather comprehensive survey of residents of a range of countries on privacy issues. Questions covered a wide range, from privacy concerns, privacy attitudes and knowledge of privacy laws.

There has been a lot of reporting on the study since it came out yesterday:

The coverage is interesting, but it's worthwhile taking a look at the presentation prepared by the researchers here.

What I found most interesting while perusing the presentation was how similar Canadian and American attitudes are reported to be.
