Iraq poll 2007: In graphics

"An opinion poll commissioned by the BBC and other major media groups has provided a revealing insight into the everyday lives, hopes and fears of people living in Iraq.

"It is the third Iraq poll conducted for the BBC since 2003 and now includes regional and ethnic breakdowns of responses with Sunnis and Shias holding diametrically opposing views on a large number of issues."

Read the full report of the poll.

Comment: This is interesting. People are more negative about the changes in the nation overall than they are about the changes in their own circumstances. It is clear that responses are getting more negative to both questions as time goes on. Still something like 45 percent of respondents thought their own lives were better now than before the war, and almost 40 percent think things overall are better. JAD
