Supplementary notes

The source gives the following explanation regarding the methodology of the study:
"We content analyzed gender roles in popular films across the 10 most profitable territories internationally (Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Russia, South Korea, and the United Kingdom) as reported by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) in 2012. Films had to be theatrically-released between January 1st 2010 and May 1st 2013 and “roughly equivalent” to a MPAA rating of G, PG, or PG-13.5. Given our desire to see how other territories compare to current U.S. films, we also selected 10 domestically popular movies during the same time frame. Because many successful films were collaborations between the U.S. and U.K., we created an additional sample of the 10 top hybrid films from these countries. Only one film was allowed per franchise worldwide. In total, 120 global films were examined."
