This page is organized by survey, where each dataset is identified by the name of the survey, and below each dataset are links to the reports released from that data. In some cases, reports draw from multiple datasets.
Typically, survey data are released two years after the reports are issued. See this post for information on how to access and download our datasets. Pew Research Center staff are available to answer questions and to provide limited assistance in importing and analyzing the data. If you have questions about the datasets, or if the information you are interested in is more than two years old but is not here, please contact the Center.
