Muslim American National Opinion Survey (MANOS)

The Muslim American National Opinion Survey (MANOS) is an original survey that aims to better understand the political attitudes and behaviors of the diverse community of Muslims living in the United States.  The survey provides one of the few nationally-representative samples of Muslim-American opinion, and covers a variety of topics ranging from perspectives on American identity, religious life, and attitudes towards the U.S. government and security apparatus. The survey design also includes a series of randomized, “between-subjects” experiments.

The Muslim American National Opinion Survey was administered to an online panel of 500 self-identified Muslims living across the United States.  The survey was fielded from February 2, 2013 through March 19, 2013 and was conducted by the international polling firm, YouGov. The data set captures respondents living in 45 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia, as well as foreign-born respondents from 46 different nations.

The project was funded by the National Science Foundation’s EDGE-SBE Research Funding Program and Stanford’s Office of the Vice Provost for Graduate Education (VPGE).
