Arab World Barometer Graphs

The graphs are derived from a series of polls administered in Arab Countries by Middle Eastern and American universities called the Arab Barometer The data illuminate a great deal about the attitudes of a part of the world that is in the midst of great turmoil. I am no expert in the Middle East or North Africa, but I do know how to process data. I downloaded the dataset from this website, and I created some graphs using ggplot2, a graphing application within R. I learned a great deal about the worldview of many Arabs and how they feel on a number of issues.
