New Normal Newsflash: April 2021

April 23, 2021

Horizon Media publishes the New Normal Newsflash monthly to help brands keep a pulse on how people are feeling and engaging in the time of COVID-19, social injustice, and political and economic turmoil.

Each Newsflash checks in with nearly 1,000 people 18+ nationwide via the Finger on the Pulse panel to understand their mindsets, attitudes and behaviors, including: 

  • What is their current emotional state, and how has it evolved?
  • How do people feel about, and how are they responding to, pressing cultural issues?
  • Have Americans’ feelings of freedom and isolation changed?
  • How do people plan to change spending habits in the next 12 months?
  • How does perceived riskiness of activities influence people’s behaviors, intentions and spending habits?
  • In what categories have people been more active, and how do they anticipate engaging in the future?
