Trust in political institutions refers to the extent to which individuals have a high degree of confidence in the institutions (government and parliament) and public administration of the country where they live. Data on these variables are derived from the 1999‐2004 wave of the World Values Survey, which ask individuals to rate their confidence in a number of organisations, with responses grouped in four categories (a great deal of confidence, quite a lot, not very much and no confidence at all). The indicators presented below refer to respondents that indicate either "a great deal" or "quite a lot of confidence" in government, parliament and civil service, as a percentage of all respondents. Data comparability across countries may be affected by the small sample size and other survey features.
