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.
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. In Barna’s most recent study, American adults were asked their view on the legality of drugs in the U.S.
Recent violence has reinvigorated the debate over police brutality and racial tension in America. Barna’s most recent study on social values asked American adults whether they believe police unfairly target people of color and other minorities, and whether they live in fear of police brutality.
As traditional Christian morality continues to lose ground in American culture, there is growing concern about the moral condition of the nation even though many American adults admit they are uncertain about how to determine right from wrong. New research from Barna probes the moral landscape in America, revealing some unique tensions.
Though deep political divisions run through the American public, there is a shared dissatisfaction with the status quo. A new study from Barna uncovers how American voters feel about the direction of their nation, the candidates for president, and the reach of the federal government.
Recent events have brought to light the often-unheeded reality of racial tension here in the United States. To explore those issues in more detail, Barna asked American adults about their experience with race and their thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement.
