The Pew Research Center is an American think tank based in Washington, D.C., that provides information on social issues, public opinion, and demographic trends shaping the United States and the world.
In 1990, Donald S. Kellermann was named to serve as the first director of what was initially known as the Times Mirror Center. It was then part of the opinion polling operation run by Times Mirror, the parent of the Los Angeles Times.
The Pew Research Center consists of seven projects:
- Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life
- Pew Global Attitudes Project
- Pew Hispanic Center
- Pew Internet and American Life Project
- Pew Research Center for the People and the Press
- Pew Social and Demographic Trends Project
- Project for Excellence in Journalism
The Pew Global Attitudes Project is a series of worldwide public-opinion surveys and reports aimed at understanding worldwide attitudes towards salient issues. The Project is chaired by former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Danforth and is funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts, with a supplemental grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
