The Pew Research Center published a brief analysis on 4 August 2014 titled "U.S., China Compete to Woo Africa" by Katie Simmons, a senior researcher at the Pew Research Global Attitudes Center. Drawing on data from Kenya, Ghana, Tanzania, Senegal, Nigeria, South Africa, and Uganda, the US and China are both viewed favorably. The US actually does slightly better than China overall in these 7 countries. The data also show that in 5 of the 7 countries, there is a declining belief that China's growing economy helps Africa.
