Understanding the public’s shifting beliefs and behaviors.
The rapid changes in our society require swift, nuanced research into Americans’ beliefs and behaviors. NORC’s Public Affairs & Media Research department provides those insights for the nation’s top media, consulting, policymaking, and philanthropic organizations.
We explore a range of issues — from people’s religious beliefs to why they buy certain goods. And if the question is especially urgent, we can incorporate NORC’s AmeriSpeak, a probability-based panel that lets us complete projects in weeks, even days.
