Texas Media & Society Survey

The Texas Media & Society Survey seeks to capture the voice of Texans and Americans on the media, civic engagement, and politics over time. Launched in 2015 as an endeavor of the Moody College of Communication, the Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Life, and the School of Journalism, the survey reveals the attitudes of Texans and Americans on media and politics, measures habits of news consumption, and offers insight into how people become informed in the digital age.
