Abrams and colleagues designed the Genetics Literacy Survey to gather information about how the public understands genomics and applies their knowledge in everyday scenarios beyond medical settings, including in the marketplace and mass media. Aiming to fit the hierarchy of knowledge framework outlined within
E.M. Rogers’ Diffusion of Innovations, the authors created a survey that measures three, scaled dimensions of genetic literacy (term familiarity, practical skills, and factual knowledge).
