"We generate a foundation of facts that enriches the public dialogue and supports sound decision-making.
Our empirical research on a wide range of topics helps U.S. and international policymakers, civic leaders, educators and the public at large understand and address some of the world’s most challenging problems.
Our public opinion surveys allow the voice of the people to be heard, and our demographic, economic and political analyses provide context to understand how the world is changing.
We are nonprofit, nonpartisan and non-advocacy. Our mission is to inform, not to prescribe. We believe that better information can build a better world."
