Once again, we report on the perceived honesty of professionals. Annually, Gallup conducts a large survey. Click here for last year’s post. Then, scroll down for the results of the 2018 poll.
2018 Gallup Poll: Perceived Honesty of Professionals
In this section, we summarize the findings of the 2018 Gallup Poll and present an infographic.
“More than four in five Americans (84%) again rate the honesty and ethical standards of nurses as ‘very high’ or ‘high,’ earning them the top spot among a diverse list of professions for the 17th consecutive year. At the same time, members of Congress are again held in the lowest esteem, as nearly 58% of Americans say they have ‘low’ or ‘very low’ ethical standards. Telemarketers join members of Congress as having a majority of low/very low ratings.”
“Bottom Line — Healthcare workers, including nurses, medical doctors, and pharmacists, continue to earn the highest ratings from Americans for their honesty and ethical standards.”
