The Annenberg Science Knowledge (ASK) survey, which began in February 2016, is a public opinion research project dedicated to exploring pressing questions in science communication. The project has included a large-scale longitudinal survey in 2018-19 of public attitudes toward vaccination. Current work includes a panel survey on knowledge, attitudes, and behavior involving vaccination and other preventive measures during the Covid-19 pandemic. Past weekly tracking surveys have focused on public concern over the Zika virus, including support for public policies to combat it, and related health and behavioral implications. ASK surveys also have gauged public opinion and knowledge on related science issues such as genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
Many Americans know of the potential risks Covid-19, but growing numbers say they have returned to living their “normal” pre-pandemic lives, according to APPC's July 2022 survey.
