Average view of whether hard work brings success

scale 1-10, 1994–2020

Info Edit

    Respondents were asked to share their views on whether hard work brings success using a scale from 1 to 10, where a score of 1 means hard work usually brings a better life and a score of 10 means hard work doesn’t usually bring success—it’s more a matter of luck and connections. This dataset reflects the average view of respondents with regards to how strongly they felt hard work brings, or does not bring, success
