Welcome to the Cometrends homepage!  Cometrends is a new nationwide survey research project sponsored by the Office of Research at the University of Texas at Dallas. Cometrends surveys measure public attitudes and opinions on a variety of important topics. All Cometrends surveys are strictly nonpartisan and conducted in the public interest.  Information collected in Cometrends surveys is confidential—no individual survey respondents are identified—and all analyses of the survey data meet rigorous scientific and ethical standards. Summary results of each Cometrend survey are made available on this website. We greatly appreciate your interest in Cometrends and your willingness to participate in a survey. 

        Professors Harold Clarke and Marianne Stewart of the School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas are the Cometrends project directors. If you would like further information, please contact them at hclarke@utdallas.edu.
