A bleg for knowledge about knowledge

Summary:
If I want to know what people know about politics and their political systems, I know where to go. Jack Vowles's New Zealand Electoral Survey has some basic civics knowledge in it; for the US, I'd look to Dye & Ziegler or Scott Althaus.But I'm now looking for work on general knowledge. If there's any decent work out there, and especially if it gives international comparisons, on basic public knowledge of basic facts, I'd love to hear about it. Like basic facts about geography, science, world history, that kind of thing.Any pointers appreciated.
