KPMG conducted the survey in 10 countries, including Canada, Australia, Denmark, Italy, the Netherlands, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, the UK, and the US, from February to May 2011. Additionally, a series of one-on-one interviews were conducted with a number of government leaders in these countries. The survey also covered 808 private sector executives.
