Map of the Month: GfK Regional Consumer Styles, Idealists, Germany 2023

GfK’s Map of the Month for June shows the regional distribution of idealists in Germany in 2023.

Inflation, war in Ukraine, climate change – people have a lot on their minds at the moment. Especially the idealists, who are generally open-minded and want to enjoy life but not at the expense of the earth, are concerned about the climate and their environment. But where  do most idealists live in Germany?

According to the latest GfK study on regional consumer styles, the share of idealists is highest in the urban district of Braunschweig (24.95 percent), followed by the urban district of Mainz (23.65 percent) and the rural district of Erlangen-Hoechstadt (22.29 percent). On the other hand, the urban district of Suhl ranks last, with idealists accounting for just 4.45 percent of the population.
