    Following the theme of our last conference, “Speaking Truth to Power”, we have gathered the most recent polls conducted in Ukraine and Russia concerning the current conflict. You will find here the web page with all the polls. We have also added the frequencies of the last wave of the World Values Survey conducted in Ukraine (2020) and Russia (2018).

    In conformity with WAPOR’s principles, we will post only polls that respect the WAPOR professional standards and are completely transparent about their methods.

  • Survey Data Recycling and Data Harmonization
    May 2022 WAPOR Webinar
    Survey Data Recycling and Data Harmonization

    WAPOR will hold the next in the series of free webinars by the World Association for Public Opinion Research (WAPOR). The webinar, Survey Data Recycling and Data Harmonization, will take place on Thursday, May 19 from 10:00 - 11:30 am EDT (2:00 - 3:30 pm GMT).

    The Survey Data Recycling project (SDR), develops ex-post harmonization methods to strengthen the comparability of answers from respondents interviewed about the same issues in 23 international survey projects whose methodology varies considerably. Ex-post harmonization of cross-national survey data is attractive to both funding agencies and survey data users, since it facilitates broader country and time coverage without new data collection. 

    Panelists will include Irina Tomescu-Dubrow and Ilona Wysmulek, both of the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology at the Polish Academy of Sciences. Former WAPOR president Claire Durand (University of Montreal) will moderate the discussion.
