Poll Data Summary

America Speaks

Each year, Research!America publishes America Speaks, a summary of our most recent poll data. We highlight trends and feature quotes from decision-makers. Use America Speaks as a resource when contacting your elected officials, writing letters to the editor, op-eds or articles, giving speeches, and advocating for research to improve health.

America Speaks: Poll Data Summary, Volume 19 is our latest release and includes findings on 30 years of research and progress, U.S. leadership in research, investment, the role of science in public policy, global competitiveness, a look at some of the nation's most pressing health challenges, vaccines, infectious diseases, child abuse and neglect, and participation in health research. 

If concerted, long-term investments in research are not made, America will lose an entire generation of young scientists.
