CNN and the Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonprofit group that researches health care and other issues, partnered to conduct the Survey of Americans on Race in order to produce a nationally representative poll on race and ethnicity to analyze how different groups feel about important issues facing their daily lives. The results of the survey provide a look at how Americans of different races and ethnic groups feel about race relations, discrimination, unfair treatment by police and social and economic inequality. Both CNN and KFF contributed funding for the survey and participated in the development of the questionnaire. Each organization is responsible for its own content related to the results of the survey.
