US Data

I kept looking up my old posts about demographic trends and socio-political shifts, polling data and generational theory. I decided it would be easier to gather them all together on a single page for easy reference. This page has a mix of posts. Mostly they are about politics and religion, but there are also some posts about issues of race, class, and wealth disparity. There is some psychological research mixed in here as well.

Most of these posts solely refer to data from the United States. Some of the changes going on here probably are similar to changes happening in certain other countries, but I usually refer to other countries only to make comparisons for the purpose of analysis.

These posts represent my attempt to make sense out of all the data I’ve seen in recent years. My opinions change a bit as I come across new data, but my general view hasn’t changed much. The trends I’ve noticed have been confirmed as I’ve come across further data. The trick is in interpreting exactly what the data means and exactly where the trends are heading.

The reason I like to look at polling and demographic data is because it’s one of the best ways to ascertain whether one’s beliefs and opinions correlate with the beliefs and opinions of others. Also, by looking at enough data, a more objective view of society overall can be ascertained. I value facts because I’m an intellectual and I like that facts can’t be owned by any single group. As Ronald Reagan said:

“Facts are stubborn things.”
