2020 American Family Survey Results To Be Released September 22nd

Are marriages more or less healthy because of the pandemic? How frequently have families protested and discussed Black Lives Matter? Are Americans satisfied with local, state and federal responses to the pandemic?

These are several questions taken from the 2020 American Family Survey, an annual nationwide poll with 3,000 respondents.  The study examines current trends in American family life and identifies how those trends relate to cultural and political issues.

The American Family Survey is designed by the Deseret News and the Center for the Study of Elections and Democracy at Brigham Young University and conducted by YouGov.

The 2020 survey will examine several topics including the presidential election, pandemic, and racial unrest and their affects on the family.

Now in its sixth year, the results of this year’s study will be released on Tuesday, September 22 at 11 a.m. EDT. The Brookings Institution will stream the event and, following the presentation of the results, an expert panel will respond to issues raised in the survey. The panel will take audience questions after the discussion.

Viewers can submit questions via email to events@brookings.edu or via Twitter using #FamilySurvey.
