GERMANY ONLY RATED 21st OUT OF 26 COUNTRIES IN 2019. IN AN INTERNATIONAL COMPARISON, A CONSPICUOUSLY LOW LEVEL OF TRUST PREVAILS.
The gap in trust between the informed and general public is ever larger: in Germany, the informed public achieves a trust index of 60 points while the general public only clocks up 42 points. At 18 points, the difference has never been greater in Germany
Dismal prospects for the future: Only one in four Germans (26%) representing the general public is of the opinion that they and their families will be better off in the next five years (informed public 38%). In an international comparison, only France and Japan are more pessimistic.
The greatest trust is placed in employers: 73 per cent of those surveyed say that they trust their employers. This value far exceeds that of trust in the economy (47%), media and NGOs (44% each) and in the government (only 40%).
