People's Perception on Industry Segments

Gallup conducts an annual survey to gauge Americans' feelings about business and industry sectors. Here are some observations from 9 years of data:

Always Negative:
· Oil and Gas Industry
· Healthcare Industry
· The Legal Field

Always Positive:
· Computer
· Farming and Agriculture
· Travel Industry
· Retail Industry

Pharmaceutical and Federal Government were negative in all years, except one.

Banking was always positive until 2007; Went into red in 2008 and 2009. Do people ever change their perceptions ? Yes, they do; Banking is one of the key examples that demonstrate this. A change from positive to negative might be quick one !!!
