    Notes: Just 37% of Americans have a positive view of the advertising and public relations industry, which puts it behind reputationally-challenged industries such as pharma and banking (each at 40%). With 33% of survey respondents having a negative view of the advertising and PR industry, the net positive rating for the industry is just 4%, on par with pharma as the 6th-worst among 25 measured. By comparison, the restaurant industry has the highest net-positive rating, of 60% (67% positive versus just 7% negative), while the retail (40%) and travel (37%) industries also have relatively good reputations.
