Americans Soften on Immigration in 2017

From “the wall” and “the travel ban” to DACA and ongoing coverage of the refugee crisis, immigration has been a front-and-center issue in the United States this year. New Barna data shows that the public sentiment has shifted, in some ways radically, toward a softer view on a number of key immigration issues since 2016.

Does School Violence Begin in the Home?

Mass shootings in schools may get the most coverage, but violence at school is happening everyday. Why are our sanctuaries of learning often unsafe for students? Barna asked American adults what they believe leads to school violence. Findings show that most point to the home as the source—but there are notable differences among ethnicities and faith groups.

Should Sex Ed Teach Abstinence? Most Americans Say Yes

Sexual norms have changed dramatically over the years, and young people are often left to their own devices (sometimes literally) when it comes to navigating sexuality. A new Barna study uncovers how Americans see their responsibility to educate and equip teens to make choices about sex.

How Teens Spend Their After-School Hours

Smartphones are changing the way an entire generation spends their time—and it’s dramatically altering their behavior. As part of the back-to-school series, this article explores how young people spend their time after school, illustrating the impact of technology on their lives.

What Parents Look for in Christian Schools

What are the school-choice priorities for parents, and what role does faith play in those decisions? In partnership with the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), Barna asked parents of current and prospective Christian school students about their schooling decisions.

Silent and Solo: How Americans Pray

Prayer is the most common faith practice among American adults, but it’s also one of the most complex. The Bible speaks of numerous kinds of prayers and different traditions emphasize certain kinds over others. Not all Americans think about it in the same way—or even pray to the same deity (if at all). A new study from Barna reveals the diverse prayer habits of American adults.
