Released by IPSOS MORI in June 2011, this poll of trust was so interesting. Finally I remember to write about the pool. Here are the top 5 trusted profession
88% public across UK say they trust doctors tell the truth.
Sir Robert Worcester
“Ever since 1983, when we first started asking the public’s view of who they trust, more people have said they trust doctors than any other profession or occupation, and they remain so today. It just goes to show how much faith the public place in doctors. It will be interesting to see if the public’s trust in doctors is maintained following the proposed changes to their role in the reforms of the NHS.”
More interesting, if we see academic hierarchic, we can see that teachers beat professors in public trust 😀
The top 5 trusted profession are doctors, teachers, professors, judges and scientist.
What about priest?
Hmm, interestingly scientist beat clergyman/priest. In other words, UK public more trust scientist rather than clergyman/priest. Clergyman/priest percentage to tell the truth is 68%, while scientist is 71%.
The bottom 5 in this pool of trust are politicians, government minister, journalist, business leaders and trade union officials. Very ironic since public get information from journalist while politicians and government minister are the public servants.
Only 19% of the public think that journalist tell the truth. the score was even less for politicians (14%) and government minister (19%).
Ordinary man/woman in the street gain better score than journalist and politician, 55% of the public believe that they tell the truth.
This is in UK 😉 What about your country?
