Public Opinion on Climate Change, 2023

Public opinion data come from the Yale Climate Opinion Maps (YCOM), which are based on a statistical model that employs nationally representative Climate Change in the American Mind (CCAM) surveys conducted between 2008 and 2023. The model combines geographic, census, socioeconomic, and political data with CCAM survey data collected by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication and George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication (combined n > 28,000). For more information about the survey question wording and methodology, please visit YCOM: climatecommunication.yale.edu/visualizations-data/ycom-us
