The U.S.A. National Sciences Foundation (NSF) asked 2200 Americans 10 questions to test their general knowledge of basic physical and life sciences in 2012. The results of the 2012 survey were included in a major report, Science and Engineering Indicators 2014, presented to the U.S. President and Congress.
The NSF plan to repeat the survey in the USA in 2014. The survey has also been recently put to the general public in the USA, China, the EU, India, Japan, Russia, Malaysia and South Korea.
