  9. 9. To set the tone for the 2019 Institute for Public Relations“Disinformation in Society”report, IPR presented respondents with 22 concerns in America. More than three-quarters of respondents ranked health care costs (78%) as a major problem. Other major challenges include illegal drug use/abuse (70%), crime (69%), terrorism (66%), and gun violence (63%). Misinformation (65%)* and disinformation (63%)** in the news were two major problems, on par with terrorism and gun violence. Interestingly, Americans identify false information as a problem in society regardless of whether there is an intent to mislead. Other issues still regarded as serious, but less so compared to misinformation and disinformation, include: illegal immigration (57%), economic inequality (52%), border security (51%), and climate change (48%). Issues that were least likely to be identified as“major problems”by Americans include age discrimination (32%), legal immigration (33%), and gender identity discrimination (34%). 8
