Not only is it reliable, the survey data provided by the Pew Research Center can be an invaluable resource for social science researchers, analysts and students alike. Established in 2004, the Pew Research Center is a nonprofit, nonpartisan research organization that administers public opinion surveys on a wide range of issues. This organization is fully committed to using the highest quality, evidence-based research methodologies for its surveys and it does not express an opinion concerning the findings that emerge from its data analysis. While the Pew Research Center concedes that response rates to all public opinion surveys have been generally declining over the past several years, it also emphasizes that this decline has not significantly affected the error rate of its surveys. Moreover, the relatively large sample sizes that are routinely used by the Pew Research Center help to promote the trustworthiness of the results that emerge from their research.
