Women Report Mixed Feelings About Social Media

The growth of digital technology and mobile devices has fundamentally altered the way we communicate and engage with each other. Social media sites mediate our online presence and set new rules for digital interactions. But the question remains: has social media made our lives better or worse? Barna conducted a study among women to examine the habits and impact of their social media use.

Plurality of Americans Favor Legalizing Marijuana

The current debate about America’s drug policy, and the experiment with marijuana in a handful of states is challenging common sense notions about combatting drug use, and public opinion is reflecting this new reality.

A recent Barna study asked Americans their views on cohabitation: the pros, cons, motivations, and effects of living together prior to marriage.
