Pew Research Center

The Pew Research Center is a nonpartisan "fact tank" that provides information on the issues, attitudes and trends shaping America and the world. It does so by conducting public opinion polling and social science research; by analyzing news coverage; and by holding forums and briefings. It does not take positions on policy issues.

The Center's work is carried out by seven projects:

  • Pew Research Center for the People & the Press
  • Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism
  • Pew Internet & American Life Project
  • Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life
  • Pew Hispanic Center
  • Pew Global Attitudes Project
  • Pew Social & Demographic Trends Project

The Pew Research Center is a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation which operates under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service code. It was established in 2004 as a subsidiary of The Pew Charitable Trusts, a Philadelphia-based public charity. Financial information is available upon request to Nikolas Wissmann, Director of Financial Administration.
