The United States is the second most-watched country in the world, after China. In big cities, one in five people has a camera.

According to one report, major cities in the United States have an average of more than 112,000 CCTV cameras, or about 2,200 per 10,000 residents.

For China, this number is still very low: in China there are 15880491 CCTV cameras in Shanghai and elsewhere, which is equivalent to one camera for every man, woman and child.

Other countries that closely monitor residents include the United Kingdom, Singapore, Australia, Germany, Poland, Brazil, Hong Kong, and India.

The researchers also looked at the number of times the country requested personal information from its citizens on Google, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, and Twitter.

China ranks first here too - mainly because it blocks most websites - but surprisingly, Malta ranks second with 33 data requests per 10,000 inhabitants, followed by Singapore, the United States, Luxembourg and Germany.

The report was written by WebsiteToolTester, which reviewed building site sites like Winx and Squarespace.

To determine the level of surveillance, CCTV cameras in the 150 most populous cities were taken from government reports, police pages, and newspaper articles and then compared to the population of those cities.

China is the largest surveillance country in the world with 10,342 surveillance cameras per 10,000 people, and in some regions the number of cameras exceeds the population.

Of the 150 cities analyzed in the report, 18 are among the 20 most viewed cities in China.

The report shows that the Chinese government has fewer data requirements on the Internet because most platforms are blocked. He also said that citizens are forced to use government social media sites that are strictly censored to monitor all sites.

Citizens are determined to monitor all content using government social media sites, which are closely monitored.

The Chinese government has banned Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft and Google, but it can still request data from 94,866 Apple users.

The United States has a penultimate proportion of the population with cameras. In big cities like New York and Boston, there are 2,232 cameras for every 10,000 people.

The US government is also busy monitoring its citizens online. In 2019 alone, the personal information of more than 800,000 Americans was requested from Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Microsoft and Google.

The United Kingdom is the third most under civilian surveillance country with an average of 16 citizens in every major city having a CCTV camera - there are over 620,707 cameras in London alone.

As for cyberspace, the UK government attempted to obtain personally identifiable information for up to 117,848 citizens in 2019.

Malta is about to come to China. The government files 33 claims per 10,000 residents. This may be related to the civil and political unrest that followed the murder of journalist (Daphne Caruana Galizia) in 2017.

The government of Singapore ranks third for data requests online with 26 requests per 10,000 residents, followed by the United States, Luxembourg, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Monaco and Portugal.

Singapore is the information most requested from Google, while the United States is the information most requested by Apple and Malta is the information most requested on Facebook.

Japan is the most requested data from Twitter while Luxembourg is the most requested data from Microsoft.

Poland, Brazil, and Turkey doubled the number of data requests submitted between 2018 and 2019, while the United States saw the largest increase of 50,000 submissions in 2019 compared to 2018.

The report says: The rapid expansion of surveillance and identification technologies and the much slower adoption of privacy and security policies has made this intrusive surveillance even more important.

The report is detailed but not complete yet because North Korea, Iran, Syria and many other countries do not have the number of CCTV cameras.
