A Gallup survey on gun ownership shows that asking if people own a gun in their home is not the same as if they own a gun

Mar 3, 2022 | Survey

We have done a lot of work on the biases in surveys of gun ownership (see here and here). But we should point out that a Gallup survey shows that simply asking people if they own a gun in the home, they are missing a couple or few percent of people who may own a gun someplace else. Just a warning that a gun in the home won’t account for all the guns that someone may own.
