State of the First Amendment [1997 - 2006]

The State of the First Amendment survey collects data on Americans' attitudes towards First Amendment issues, including freedom of expression and tolerance for art that may be offensive to others.

The survey is conducted annually (since 1997, except for 1998) for the First Amendment Center (http://www.firstamendmentcenter.org), by the Center for Survey Research and Analysis at the University of Connecticut except for 2005. In 2005, the survey was conducted by New England Survey Research Associates. The final reports for each survey are available on the First Amendment Center's web site, http://www.firstamendmentcenter.org/sofa_reports/index.aspx

The data from the study is archived at:
