What Percentage of Americans Think Sex Before Marriage is “Always Wrong”?



A few years ago, I created a visualization that showed how public opinions of premarital sex have changed over the last 40 years. Now, new data is available from NORC’s General Social Survey so I decided to go ahead and revisit this subject. This look provides a deeper dive into how many people think its “Always Wrong” to have premarital sex and how that breaks out by different demographic traits.



Data Notes

This data comes from the General Social Survey. Once I had the data, I used Tableau to create the visualization.
