STS Investigation from a Comparative Perspective

The Science, Technology and Society Barometer (STS Barometer) is a survey on trust in scientists (experts), science communication media, open science, artificial intelligence ethics, and bioethics issues to promote science communication research. We investigate and provide data on public perceptions and attitudes toward science and technology through periodic, representative, and large-scale surveys. We warmly welcome the participation of all potential collaborators.

科学・技術・社会バロメーター(STS Barometer)は、科学コミュニケーション研究の促進を目的として、科学者(専門家)、科学コミュニケーションメディア、オープンサイエンス、人工知能倫理、生命倫理問題に対する信頼度を調査するものである。定期的、代表的、大規模な調査を通じて科学と技術に対する国民の認識と態度を調査し、データを提供します。潜在的な協力者の皆様のご参加を心より歓迎いたします。

    Data from Chinese Collaborators, 2023-2024 / 中国の第1波

    The first wave of the STS Barometer survey in China was conducted by the Research Center for Science, Technology and Society at Tsinghua University at the end of 2023, covering 31 provinces (cities and autonomous regions) in Chinese mainland. A total of 21,074 target people were invited and 9,906 responses were received, of which 3,000 valid samples were retained after screening.

    The survey teams in both countries conducted investigation independently to ensure that there was no political interference or financial dealings between them. The Chinese and Japanese questionnaires shared many of the same questions, providing an advantage for comparative research.
