The Understanding America Study (UAS) is a panel of households at the University of Southern California (USC) of approximately 9,400 respondents representing the entire United States. The study is an ‘Internet Panel,’ which means that respondents answer surveys on a computer, tablet, or smart phone, wherever they are and whenever they wish to participate. Right now the USC Center for Economic and Social Research’s Understanding Coronavirus in America tracking survey is following the attitudes and behaviors around the Novel Coronavirus pandemic in the United States. They also tracked the U.S. 2020 Presidential Election both pre and post-election.
A majority of the UAS data is publicly available. An excellent start is the UAS Comprehensive File, which merges the data from a number core surveys in the UAS that are repeated every two years. To explore the UAS data in an interactive manner check out the UAS Visualization Toolkit.
