Here is a heat map, which was created by Pew Research Center after interviewing around 38000 interviewees from 39 countries from March to May last year, showing which countries accept homosexuality while which do not. In the map, the darker red represents lower acceptance while the greener represents higher acceptance.
This heat map is similar to our interactive heat map that created in last June that countries like Canada, Australia, and Argentina.
Map Reviews: 3/5 Stars
The map cannot display the whole picture of the world acceptance towards homosexual as only little amount of people from 39 countries have participated in the research, and people from many countries, like India, have not been interviewed.
There is also a minor suggestion towards the above heat map that heat map legend is needed for indicating the heat map colors.
Since the first legal same sex marriage took place in Amsterdam in 2001, there have been 15 countries (e.g. certain states in US, part of Mexico, Australian Capital territories) legalized it within these 12 years. However, there are still some countries do not accept homosexual (e.g. Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen).
According to below image, it seems that homosexual is more acceptable in Europe that most of the European countries allow same sex marriage, and same sex unions are allowed. Please note that homosexual can be punished by imprisonment in some of island countries in Oceania:
This gay marriage map can be converted into multilevel interactive map that detailed information can be added to each countries with popup infobox, and map legend can be created for indicating various region colors.
Here is a video tutorial about creating multi-level maps:
Few months ago, we have shared maps about same sex marriage issue in the United States, and after state Supreme Court ruling on September 27, New Jersey becomes the 14th states to issue same sex marriage license since October 21. We found a U.S. map giving you a prompt idea about which states allow same sex marriage.
As the issue of same-sex marriage becomes a hot topic recently in several countries, for example in the United States, a new Pew Research Center survey finds huge variance by counties question of whether homosexuality should be accepted or rejected by society. An interactive heat map has been created by iMapBuilder to showcase the result.
The survey that conducted in 39 countries reflects broad acceptance of homosexuality in North America, Europe, and much of Latin America. According to statistics, there are obvious increasing people in South Korea, the United States and Canada accept the homosexual with 10% growth since 2007. The survey also claims that religions and age generation are factors towards the acceptance.
Check the following heat map to see which regions have higher acceptance towards homosexual, and you can find more details by watching the embedded videos and news in the infobox.
