On February 25, 2020, the ACLU of Utah joined with Planned Parenthood Association of Utah and Alliance for a Better Utah, to release the results of a phone survey regarding sex education, birth control, and abortion conducted by Dan Jones and Associates.

The target audience was the general population aged 18+ across the state of Utah. The survey was in field from January 23rd through February 9th, 2020. Calls were administered to both landline and cell phone numbers, split 58% to 42%. With a final sample size of 793, the margin of error was +/-3.48%. To ensure adequate representation of the population of Utah, quotas were set by both county and age, proportional to the latest population estimates from the US Census Bureau.
