Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan research organization and a subsidiary of The Pew Charitable Trusts, is surveying public views about science-related issues and public trust in scientists. One scientific finding sometimes in the news involves childhood immunization. Here, the center found that the vast majority of Americans—88 percent—believe that the benefits of vaccines for children outweigh the risks. In this episode, host Dan LeDuc discusses that data point and more on the study with Cary Funk, associate director of research on science and society at Pew Research Center.
