Pew Global Attitudes examines international public opinion on a broad range of issues, from people’s assessments of their own lives to views about the current state of the world.
This project project provides independent public opinion survey research about American attitudes toward politics and policy. Formerly, the Times Mirror Center for the People & the Press (1990-1995), the Center has been sponsored by The Pew Charitable Trusts since 1996. Major reports examine long-term trends in political values, U.S. views on policy issues and priorities and political knowledge and news interest.
