The 2015 Edelman Trust Barometer is the firm’s 15th annual trust and credibility survey. The survey was powered by research firm Edelman Berland and consisted of 20-minute online interviews conducted on October 13th – November 24th, 2014. The 2015 Edelman Trust Barometer online survey sampled 27,000 general population respondents with an oversample of 6,000 informed publics ages 25-64 across 27 markets. All informed publics met the following criteria: college-educated; household income in the top quartile for their age in their country; read or watch business/news media at least several times a week; follow public policy issues in the news at least several times a week.

February 12, 2015 Correction: A previous version of this report incorrectly labeled the data on slide 11 as being about information “created by each author on social networking sites, content sharing sites and online-only information sources.” The data is not about trust in authors but trust in sources, and the label has been updated.
February 5, 2015 Correction: A previous version of this report stated in a headline on slide 20 that an “expert” and "a person like yourself" are twice as credible as a CEO - they are more credible by at least 20 percentage points; a Jeff Bezos quote on slide 23 misused “business" for “society."
January 28, 2015 Correction: A previous version of this report had reversed the labeling of business and government on slide 46 in the appendix.
