Reducing Bias in Public Opinion Polls - By Autumn Carter
Presentation Delivered at Stanford University, Summer Research College, August 2009
Presentation of some of my results from my research. Over the course of the project, I analyzed 7 survey experiments across 9 unique vendors, who conducted the survey via phone or the internet and using either a probability sample or a non-probability sample. In all, about 10000 unique individuals were surveyed.
This presentation highlights the question bias of Agree/Disagree type questions and the response bias associated with the Acquiescence Effect.
I conducted my research through Stanford\'s Political Psychology Research Group. pprg.stanford.edu
