What do Americans think of their role in the world?

3 December 2013 Last updated at 20:40 GMT

For the first time since 1974, more than half of Americans say the US should "mind its own business" with international affairs.

This is according to new findings by the non-partisan Pew Research Center and Council on Foreign Relations poll, America's Place in the World, conducted every four years of both the general public and opinion leaders.

Their survey also found that many American foreign policy concerns are closely intertwined with domestic issues such as jobs and energy.

One area where Americans do support more international involvement is in strengthening economic partnerships across the globe.

The BBC breaks down some of the most striking statistics about how America views itself on the global stage.
