Pew Research Center is a nonpartisan fact tank that informs the public about the issues, attitudes and trends shaping America and the world. It conducts public opinion polling, demographic research, media content analysis and other empirical social science research. Pew Research does not take policy positions. It is a subsidiary of The Pew Charitable Trusts.

The Pew Research Center for the People & the Press is one of the seven projects that carry out the Pew Research Center’s work. The 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.
