This year the survey features new questions including on the value of networking and, following data from last year's report on the numbers of those entering the profession via private education, a series of questions on social mobility.

A second research project – State of the Industry - in 2020 will explore the public relations “industry”. The latter project will gauge the strengths and weaknesses of the industry.
