We study a wide array of topics both in the U.S. and around the world, and every year we are struck by particular findings. Here are 17 findings that stood out to us in 2017.
1. Partisanship has eclipsed all other demographic differences when it comes to political values.
2. Donald Trump’s presidency has had a major impact on how the world sees the United States.
3. 42% of Americans say they live in a gun-owning household; 30% say they personally own a gun.
4. Democrats and Republicans disagree now more than ever on the news media’s “watchdog” role.
5. Muslims are projected to be the world’s fastest-growing major religious group in the decades ahead.
6. In the U.S., Hispanic identity fades across generations as distance from immigrant roots grows.
7. Americans see fundamental differences between men and women, but men and women have different views on the cause of these differences.
8. Many Americans expect certain professions to be dominated by automation in their lifetime – but few see their own jobs at risk.
9. Republicans’ attitudes about the effect of colleges and universities have changed dramatically since 2015.
10. Immigrants are projected to play the primary role in the growth of the American working-age population in the coming decades.
11. News stories about President Trump’s first 60 days in office offered far more negative assessments than they did of prior administrations.
12. In the past 10 years, the share of Americans living without a spouse or partner has increased, especially among young adults.
13. About half of 2.2 million people who sought asylum in Europe during the 2015 and 2016 refugee surge were still in limbo at the end of 2016 and did not know if they would be allowed to stay.
14. About eight-in-ten Americans say they understand the risks and challenges of police work, but 86% of police say the public does not understand.
15. About six-in-ten Americans ages 18 to 29 say the primary way they watch television now is with streaming services on the internet.
16. Views on whether whites benefit from societal advantages that blacks do not have are split sharply along racial and partisan lines.
17. Science knowledge is closely related to expectations for harm from climate change among Democrats, but not among Republicans.
