We the Peoples: Celebrating Seven Million Voices

This report presents the global results of MY World, the UN survey for a better world, which was developed in response to the Secretary-General’s call for “the most inclusive development agenda the world has ever seen”. The survey places good jobs in top 3 priorities for post 2015 amongst 7 million poll participants.

To date, MY World is the largest survey ever undertaken by the United Nations in its 70-year history, having reached over 7 million people all over the world.

It asks citizens all over the world to vote for the six out of 16 issues which are most important to them and their families – from better healthcare to clean water and sanitation, to freedom from discrimination. Those priorities are visualized on an open data site, where the priorities can be disaggregated by gender, age, education, HDI level, and country.

“The findings of this report are crucial inputs to the new development agenda, which is to be decided by member states in September 2015,” noted UN Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson.
