This report covers the landscape for polling in 157 countries, making it the most extensive global review by these organizations. Practitioners in the 157 countries provided information about government laws and regulations concerning the freedoms to conduct polls and publish polling results, regulation of the industry, polling methods, the role of international associations and guidelines, the quality of media coverage of polls, and the availability of training for pollsters and journalists. There are both positive and negative findings in this latest ESOMAR/WAPOR study on the Freedom to Conduct and Publish Opinion Polls, the largest and most global of this series of studies, which began in 1984. The new study has more respondents, more question topics, and more information than ever before about the status of polling in the world.
