Health Care Reform Surveys:
In 1998, the Congressional Institute commissioned Charlton Research Company to conduct separate surveys, based on the Public Judgment model, of how Americans: (1) feel about their health-care coverage and concerns about health care in the future; and (2) rate their attitudes toward several health-care policy alternatives specifically dealing with patient protection. As health care returns to the forefront of national debate, these studies constitute a useful benchmark or reference point on health matters.

National Issues Survey:
On behalf of the Congressional Institute, the Charlton Research Company conducted a National Issues Survey in January 2001 to determine which issues were of greatest concern to Americans. The terrorism attacks of 9/11 probably modified the priorities defined in this study.

Americans Talk about Taxes:
On behalf of the Congressional Institute, the Charlton Research Company conducted a national survey in March 1996 to identify the values, attitudes and opinions Americans hold with respect to taxes. With comprehensive tax reform on the Congressional agenda again, the debate over taxes is coming back into focus. This survey goes beyond public opinion over a particular tax proposal – it exposes the core values at work in the American public’s mind when dealing with taxes.

Environmental Values Survey:
In 1996, the Congressional Institute commissioned the Charlton Research Company to conduct a comprehensive research study to determine, based on public opinion, whether environmentalism is moving into a new phase and whether the public’s vision toward the environment is changing. This study reveals how environmental issues interact with other values held by Americans and shows the different ways that these issues are perceived and judged.

National Vision Foundation Study:
In the spring of 1997, the Congressional Institute and the National Vision Foundation commissioned the Charlton Research Company to conduct a survey to discover whether the public thinks the U.S. has a national vision towards which both citizens and leaders are working, and if so, what that vision is and how the country’s most pressing issues fit into it. The core values of a nation evolve slowly; although this research is older it reflects the primary values and concerns that drive decision-making within the American public.
