Pew Research Center provides high-quality information that enriches the public dialogue and informs decisions – whether by policymakers, civic leaders, journalists or the public.  

The Center is nonprofit, nonpartisan and nonadvocacy. We value independence, objectivity, accuracy, rigor, humility, transparency and innovation.  

Partnerships are vital to the impact we seek to create, expanding the scope of our work. We partner strategically with philanthropists and institutional funders who share our commitment to impartial research and data that drive discussion and support decision-making. 

All our publications clearly list funders or partners. Pew Research Center is solely responsible for the design, execution and analysis of all research products and has full editorial control. (Read more about our funding and our mission and code of ethics.)

Partner Spotlight

The Pew-Knight Initiative supports new research on how Americans absorb civic information, form beliefs and identities, and engage in their communities. It seeks to empower Americans seeking to navigate the current media and technology landscape and to provide critical insights to news providers seeking to serve citizens more effectively.

For more than a decade, the Pew-Templeton Global Religious Futures project has provided global analysis of religious change and its impact on societies around the world, including in-depth studies in more than 100 countries.

The project combines resources of two organizations to enable a world-class research team to analyze existing data, collect new data using rigorous methods, and foster open science principles.

With support from the Neubauer Family Foundation, Pew Research Center conducted a series of surveys about Jewish Americans and religion in Israel. The work illuminated both the continuing demographic vitality and some serious challenges facing the Jewish populations of the United States and Israel.

With support from multiple funders, the Center issued a series of publications exploring the experiences, attitudes, and views of Asians living in the United States. The work was based on the largest nationally representative survey of its kind, conducted among 7,006 Asian adults, as well as the Center’s largest qualitative focus group analysis to date, based on 66 focus groups organized into 18 distinct Asian ethnic origin groups and held in 18 languages.
