Are Jews more likely to see themselves as "world citizens"?
The World Values Survey asked participants, "To which of these geographical groups would you say you belong first of all? Locality, region, country, continent, world." I calculated the percent who answered "world" for two groups: 1) Jews in a particular country, and 2) all people in that country. Results are listed in the table.
Jews are a little more likely than their fellow countrymen to identify as world citizens, but only in France is the difference large.
