Measuring “admirability”
YouGov Ratings measures the popularity and fame of anything and everything, based on millions of responses from the public, the company’s website says.

In December last year, YouGov gathered open-ended nominations from panellists across 41 countries, asking them simply: "Thinking about people alive in the world today, which [man or woman] do you most admire?”

"These nominations were then used to compile a list of the 20 men and 20 women who received the most nominations and were nominated in at least four countries. An additional 10 popular local figures were added to the lists for individual countries,” the company explained its methodology in obtaining the poll.

According to the company, in the fieldwork conducted from March to June, the company used their lists to poll each of the 41 countries, asking two questions: “Who do you truly admire?,” where respondents could make multiple selections, and “Who do you MOST admire?,” where they could only pick one.

“These two numbers were combined into a percentage share of admiration, displayed to the right of each name in the graphic above and table below, which shows the full results for every country including local celebrities and public figures.”

The company explained that by asking respondents two questions, “we can understand both the breadth (i.e. global reach) and the intensity of a person's support.”

“Altogether, we polled in countries that constitute more than two-thirds of the world's population. However, some parts of the world were better represented than others, so we weighted up the impact certain countries had on the final scores and weighted down others so the global scores more accurately reflect the breakdown of sentiment in the world overall.”
