Respondents in both 2013 and 2018 were asked if "over the past five years, has antisemitism on the internet, including on social media, increased, stayed the same or decreased." The amounts recorded show the percentage who answered "increased a lot" and increased a little." The most dramatic changes in perceptions occured in Germany (+23) and the United Kingdom (+21), and the only country who recorded a decrease in perceived antisemitism online was Hungary.
