2016 was a year for the history books, and throughout all of it Barna has been tracking the top trends and attempting to make sense of American public opinion. To celebrate the end of 2016 we’ve compiled our top 10 most-read articles of the year from our website.
In celebration of the release of Barna Trends 2017—and the comprehensive overview of the research and analysis we’ve conducted during the past 18 months in its pages—here is a preview of the biggest and best research insights from Barna that span the categories of culture, life and faith.
On January 26, Barna is releasing a huge new research study about pastors via a free webcast called The State of Pastors: Leading in Complexity. The research takes a fresh and revealing look at the lives of pastors – how they handle challenges in their families, churches, and in the community. We draw on interviews Barna has conducted with over 10,000 pastors. Find out more here.
The 2016 Presidential Campaign has been a long and tumultuous road, but we’re finally in the home stretch. Since February, Barna has been chronicling the opinions and attitudes of the American public toward this historic campaign, so in recognition of Election Day, here’s a recap of our coverage.
Despite the tight race for the presidency between Trump and Clinton, each candidate is drawing a vastly different segment of voters. A new study from Barna indicates just how divergent those segments are—and helps to explain how divided the nation is in its vision for the future.
Millions of young educated Americans are heading into the workforce this summer, but unlike other generations, Millennials have higher expectations for their work and careers, but are simultaneously much less attached to their jobs, seeking meaning and identity elsewhere. Drawing on a number of recent studies, Barna's research explores the vocational paradoxes of a paradoxical generation.
