Microsoft’s founder Bill Gates and well-famed actress Angelina Jolie made it to the top of the list as the world’s most admired people and some Pakistani people, including Imran Khan and Malala Yousafzai also made it to the global rankings. The list mainly consists of actors and celebrities but political figures, such as Barack Obama and Vladmir Putin are included as well.

The researcher interviewed 37,000 people and based its final calculations on their responses to two questions – first, whether the interviewee admires the person in question and second if the interviewee admired the particular person the most.
