Pew Research Center’s main website offers plenty in the way of polished reports, data visualizations and interactives. But there are also lots of methodological musings, puzzles and tangles that you would see if you could flip those picture-perfect research products over (metaphorically speaking).

We’re here to do that part for you.

Since we can’t loop you, our research friends, into our in-office chatter, we’ve created this channel as the next best thing. At Decoded, you’ll find blog posts about some paths taken and some narrowly avoided, including experiments that intrigued us but never saw the light of day. We’ll be talking about survey methods, of course, but also data science, data visualization and even news app development.

Feedback is majorly welcome — so leave your thoughts and questions in the comments or reach out to us via e-mail at info@pewresearch.org.

Thanks for joining us.

Claudia Deane is vice president of research at Pew Research Center.
