The PEW Research Center, headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a "... nonpartisan "fact tank" that provides information on the issues, attitudes and trends shaping America and the world."
At the end of the eleven (11) question test, PEW research analysts will give your score, and tell you which questions you got correct and which ones were (oh-oh!) wrong.
They will also compare your score with others taking the test earlier in a national telephone survey across the United States.
Whether you live in the United States, Australia, or elsewhere in the world, you should be able to answer a majority of these questions about what is going on all over this great, big world we call home.
Please go to this PEW Research Center Web page to begin the test: Current Events IQ Test.
Good luck and, especially, good skill and memory!
