(CNN) -- The Property Mood Map is part of CNN's One Square Meter coverage and gives you the chance to share your attitude to the property market and property ownership in your county. You can then compare your results with CNN.com users all over the world.

The three preliminary questions indicate your age, location and property ownership status. The four main questions you answer have multiple choice answers, representing sentiments from positive to negative, or confident to not confident.

Once submitted, we compile the answers and color the world map, based on an average of the responses for each country. So if 50% of respondents were very confident and 50% very not confident, the country in question would be colored from the center of the scale. We also show how many people have responded in each country as well as by age group and property ownership status.

This is not a scientific poll. Answers are entered anonymously. The results only indicate the sentiments felt by CNN.com users and may not reflect public opinion.
