Every day our Research and Data Insights team works with media organizations around the world to make their stories pop by showcasing data we get from you, the people. Here are the top insights powered by SurveyMonkey data in the past few weeks:
- Everyone deserves their fair share: On Latina Women’s Equal Pay Day (November 2), Eva Longoria authored an article in Fortune, which highlights SurveyMonkey data that shows that “two-thirds of Latina women today perceive large gender and racially biased-pay gaps.”
- Especially the corporations—at least that’s what Republicans say: The New York Times reports that “three-quarters of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents approve of cutting corporate taxes” from our September poll.
- Speaking of the new GOP tax plan, is it causing you to lose sleep? Well, join the club of insomniacs. “A whopping 46 percent of respondents said they’re getting too little sleep on a nightly basis,” according to a poll from NBC and SurveyMonkey, which pointed to cell phones as a potential reason for why.
- Or maybe it’s because you’re having nightmares about that scary movie you watched on Halloween. Using SurveyMonkey Audience, FiveThirtyEight asked when are you too old to trick-or-treat and “57 percent of respondents picked an age between 12 and 15.”
- There were probably many fewer Hillary Clinton costumes this past October 31st: The 2016 election did not galvanize millennial women to run for office according to a Cosmopolitan/SurveyMonkey poll. “Eighteen percent of young women said the election made them less likely to run, while 16 percent said the election made them more likely to run.”
That’s it! For this month, at least. If you’re curious about more ways people are using data from SurveyMonkey, don’t forget to check our Twitter and Facebook pages. We hope these stories inspire you to create your own people powered data.
