Pew Research Center's Global Attitudes Project
Washington,DC, United States
The Pew Research Center’s Global Attitudes Project conducts public opinion surveys around the world on a broad array of subjects ranging from people’s assessments of their own lives to their views about the current state of the world and important issues of the day. Nearly 300,000 interviews in 59 countries have been conducted as part of the project’s work.
The project is directed by Andrew Kohut, president of the Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan “fact tank” in Washington, DC, that provides information on the issues, attitudes and trends shaping America and the world. The project is principally funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts. The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation provided supplemental grants for the 2002 and 2007 surveys. Components of the 2007 survey were conducted in partnership with the Kaiser Family Foundation and The New York Times.
The project provides to journalists, academics, policymakers and the public a unique, comprehensive, internationally comparable series of surveys.
Since its inception in 2001, the Pew Global Attitudes Project has released numerous major reports, analyses, and other releases, on topics including attitudes toward the U.S. and American foreign policy, globalization, terrorism, and democracy.
The Pew Global Attitudes Project team regularly consults with survey and policy experts, academic regional and economic experts, activists and policymakers. Their expertise provides tremendous guidance in shaping the surveys.
