Malala, Imran Khan featured in World's Most Admired people of 2018 list

(Web Desk) - Nobel Prize victor Malala Yousafzai and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's Chairman Imran Khan are among the world's most admired people, according to an online survey conducted by YouGov UK. Gates has always won the top spot every time such a survey has been conducted.

The list consists of single-sex categories, each feature 20 men and 20 women from around the world and is a result of online interviews with more than 37,000 people from 35 countries.

The majority of women featured hail from the entertainment industry, with Taylor Swift, Madonna, Priyanka Chopra, Liu Yifei and Gal Gadot.

Former US president Barack Obama, actor Jackie Chan and Chinese president Xi Jinping follow Gates in the top 20 men.

When it comes to how people feel, country by country, about Obama or Trump, respondents in 19 nations put the 44th president in the no. 1 spot.

Who do you MOST admire? - where respondents could only pick one selection. However, as the former president performs relatively poorly in populous countries like China (7) and Russian Federation (12), Gates - who places in the top four in every country listed -scoops the top spot.

Entertainers dominate the female top twenty, with 14 of the most admired women being actresses, singers or TV presenters. YouGov survey data shows Angelina Jolie is the most admired woman in the world (8.2 percent), former first lady Michelle Obama is second (8.0 percent) and Oprah Winfrey is ranked third (7.1 percent). It is a list of public figures which the people all around look up to.

The Nobel Prize laureate and PTI chairman made it to top 20 of the men and women lists, according to an annual study compiled by YouGov.

The company said that the questions it used to come up with its rankings included "Who do you truly admire" and "Who do you most admire?"

Altogether, we polled in countries that constitute more than two-thirds of the world's population. The survey by the website has been conducted since 2015.
