Society, Media, and Public Affairs

For years, NORC has been developing a firmer, finer grasp of what American citizens—and increasingly, citizens of other countries—think about issues ranging from criminal justice to religious belief so that governments, nonprofits and other organizations can develop policies and programs that more effectively address citizens’ concerns.
