Survey Measures What Americans Know About The U.S. Foreign Aid Budget

This post in Population Services International’s (PSI) “Healthy Lives” blog reports the results of a “survey of 507 Americans [administered] at the end of September [that] sought to capture what, exactly, Americans know about the foreign aid budget.” According to the blog, the PSI survey asked participants how important it is for the U.S. to provide aid for foreign countries, what the most important reason for U.S. investment in global health and development is and whether it is important for the U.S. to invest in these sectors because recipient countries will become significant consumers of U.S. goods, and concluded that “[a] strong majority of Americans believe foreign aid is a good thing” (10/12).
