A bit of an overwhelming way to look at this data, but really interesting once you start digging in.

Takes a moment to get reading correctly, but some interesting trends are shown regarding scientific policy.

The good: Creating a world-class education system seems to be pretty high up there, and only jobs and healthcare are rated as more important. This needs to apply to the country’s scientific literacy as a whole and not just those who choose to apply themselves to it.

The bad: Combating the effects of climate change loses to just about everything. Regardless of what you believe the extent is, it is undeniable that climate change is happening and humans are having a strong effect on it. Considering how much of humanity is located along low-lying coastlines, this is a pretty big deal.
