Strada-Gallup Education Consumer Survey

Listening to the voice of education consumers to strengthen education to employment pathways.

Nearly every other major industry has embraced and benefited from the transformative information that comes from consumer feedback. Through groundbreaking consumer insights, the Strada-Gallup Education Consumer Survey helps strengthen education to employment pathways so that more Americans realize their purpose and potential through meaningful careers and fulfilling lives.

Through 350 interviews daily, a representative sample of U.S. adults aged 18 to 65 share their thoughts on their educational paths and what shaped them. This three-year project will gather more than 360,000 individual interviews covering consumers of every age, socioeconomic status, race/ethnicity, gender and educational attainment level, among other demographics.

The Education Consumer Survey provides first-of-its-kind information about the different educational paths that education consumers take and how their paths have influenced their working lives and well-being. Thus, postsecondary and policy leaders, employers, faculty and students are better positioned to make informed choices about how to support student success.
