The American workforce is undergoing a profound change. According to the latest NPR/Marist Poll of the future of work, one in five American workers are contract workers. Who are they, and what kind of an impact do they have on the labor force? Poll Hub has the answers.
And, the language of polls…
Survey questions are a sign of the times. In this segment, the Poll Hub team looks back on questions dating back more than half a century and discusses how their phrasing has evolved over time. On the table are questions about race relations, interracial marriage, and a woman’s place in the workplace.
Plus, “Today’s outlier is tomorrow’s conventional wisdom.”
What does it mean when a pollster’s numbers are different from other polls? Using the latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll as a starting point, Poll Hub explains why jumping to conclusions may not be the best thing to do.
