The Humanities in American Life

The Survey of the Humanities in American Life is a first-of-its-kind nationally representative survey of Americans about their engagement with and perception of the humanities.

The survey was developed over the course of two years by the staff of the Humanities Indicators (a project of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences), in consultation with leaders from public humanities organizations, scholarly societies, and federal agencies with an interest in the field. The survey was administered in November 2019, in English and Spanish, to 5,015 U.S. adults age 18 and older who participate in NORC at the University of Chicago’s AmeriSpeak Panel.
