National Opinion Research Center: Data and Findings

The National Opinion Research Center (NORC) was created in 1941 with a mission “to conduct high-quality social science research in the public interest.” Its work is quite broad and includes studies of public school system performance, economic development projects, and other germane matters. On the Data and Findings page, visitors can peruse and explore hundreds of NORC’s papers from past months and years. Interested parties can search through all of these documents as they see fit or perhaps just scroll through to find something that strikes some interest. Some recent titles include “Promising Practices to Improve Access to Oral Health Care in Rural Communities” and “The State of Our Nation’s Youth.”
