Virtual Event Unveiling
Survey Findings on Proposals to
Limit Negative Consequences of Criminal Records

Wednesday, April 14, 2021
12:00 PM – 1:15 PM Eastern

Please join the Program for Public Consultation as we release the findings of a new, national survey on legislative proposals changing how we treat people with criminal record histories with respect to employment, public housing, licensing boards and voting.  

The national survey was conducted online from February 12-22, 2021 with a probability-based sample of 2,487 registered voters provided by Nielsen Scarborough from Nielsen’s larger sample of respondents, who were recruited by mail and telephone using a random sample of households.  

The University of Maryland’s Program for Public Consultation develops surveys called “policymaking simulations” designed to put citizens in the shoes of their Member of Congress. Respondents are briefed on an issue and asked to weigh pro and con arguments before making recommendations on what Congress should do. Policymaking simulations are developed with input from experts on all sides of an issue and from across the political spectrum, to ensure accuracy and balance.
