The Center will commission original survey research, collect and analyze other types of data and produce insightful analysis on various topics. The Center's work will be sponsored by philanthropic foundations and other individuals and organizations interested in deepening understanding of key issues. The Center will issue its inaugural report the first week in September detailing the results of a survey entitled 'Civil Liberties and Security: ten years after 9/11' which seeks to determine where people draw the line between civil liberties and security. The survey also looks back at the impact of the events of 9/11 and how they have affected the way Americans live their lives present. The Center will also: track selected social, political, and cultural trends over time. Explore the relationships among public opinion research and ongoing public policy discussions. Bring together subject-matter experts from AP and NORC--and leading experts from other institutions--to collaborate on research projects. Conduct methodological research that will advance the field of public opinion research.
