Most Americans support efforts to increase diversity in the workforce, but believe this is likely to lead to racial and gender quotas, and most don’t think diversity efforts are improving race relations.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 51% of American Adults believe companies generally should seek to encourage racial and gender diversity in their workforce. Thirty-five percent (35%) disagree and another 14% are not sure.
The survey of 1,000 U.S. American Adults was conducted on May 31 and June 5, 2022 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
