It’s the world’s largest market for smartphones—and also home to the most number of employees who access adult content through work devices.

A survey by Blue Coat Systems, an enterprise security firm, which polled 1,580 respondents across 11 countries, has thrown up the Chinese as most prolific watchers of pornography on their employers’ devices.

Mexico and the UK are next, with India at a distant fifth. The global average is about 6%.

Here are the complete rankings:

Around two out of five employees said they use social media for personal reasons at work, while 51% of the respondents said they use personal devices for work. And 20% of those surveyed also admitted to opening emails from unverified sources.
