About Public Agenda

Founded in 1975 by social scientist and author Daniel Yankelovich and former U.S. Secretary of State Cyrus Vance, Public Agenda works to help average citizens better understand critical policy issues and to help the nations leaders better understand the publics point of view. Public Agendas particular expertise lies in crafting research studies that explore different points of view with empathy and probe beneath surface responses to capture the publics concerns and assumptions. Our in-depth research on how citizens think about policy forms the basis for extensive citizen education work. Our citizen education materials, used by the National Issues Forums and media outlets across the country, have won praise for their credibility and fairness from elected officials from both political parties and from experts and decision makers across the political spectrum. Our web site, Public Agenda Online ( provides comprehensive information on a wide range of public opinion and public policy issues.
