"NORC has been collecting data on hope among American adults since January 2019. Despite the global pandemic, raging wild fires, contentious elections, and widespread protests over racial injustice, some people were still able to find hope in 2020. We will continue to track these data and tell this story via our monthly AmeriSpeak survey panel." – Nola du Toit, Senior Research Methodologist
