  1. 1. Victory for Partnership with YouGov – Online Research in Russia
  2. 2. What is ? “ Founded in May 2000, YouGov plc is a professional market research and consulting organisation pioneering the use of the Internet and information technology to collect high quality, in- depth data for market, opinion research ” and stakeholder consultation.
  3. 3. What is ? YouGov is a professional research and consulting organisation providing companies with a rounded view of their customers and brands as well as assessing opinion amongst the general public and the media. Through panel management expertise, flexibility and an innovative approach to recruitment, YouGov operates different panels around the world and in Russia, representing all ages, socio- economic groups and other demographic types. YouGov also specialises in growing and maintaining dedicated panels of specialist consumer and professional audiences and offers innovative and tailored market research solutions, quality service and insight.

  7. 7. Panel Methodology Registration Each panel member completes a detailed profiling questionnaire and sets up an account name and password. This questionnaire enables us to select a sample of respondents – representing the universe that is the subject of the research . Recruitment & Incentives Our pool is recruited from a wide variety of sources. We proactively recruit our panel with targeted campaigns via non-political websites, to ensure an appropriate demographic balance. People can also join the panel through the open site. Although our pool is not an exact representation of the Russian public, it contains enough people in each major demographic group to draw samples that do represent the electorate as a whole. Respondents receive a small incentive for completing YouGov surveys. The purpose is to ensure that samples are as representative as possible, and that responses are not tilted towards those passionately interested in the subject of the particular survey.
  8. 8. Conducting Surveys When we conduct a survey, our first step is to select a sub-group of our pool that is representative. We then email the selected panel members and invite them to complete the survey by clicking on an Internet link. In order to complete the survey they must log in and provide their password. This ensures that the right people complete the survey, and enables their answers to be matched to the demographics they provided when they registered. Response rates of at least 40% are normally achieved within 24 hours and 60% within 72 hours. Little difference has been detected between early and later responses, once the data has been weighted to demographic and attitudinal variables. When fieldwork is complete, the raw data is adjusted, taking account of age, gender, social class, newspaper readership and past vote, to ensure that our published results represent the view of the pool as a whole. Naturally, we abide strict guidelines on confidentiality.
  9. 9. Research Quality Eliciting frankness of response Independent academic research has demonstrated that people respond more frankly through online self-completion than through person-to-person interviews. Furthermore, it is possible to present respondents with complex information online and expect a higher level of consideration, which is impossible in telephone interviews. Proprietary Technology We have developed our own advanced survey technology which means we can respond to client needs with greater flexibility and lower cost – and, crucially – which allows us to experiment and innovate to ensure we remain the leading-edge practitioners of online research. Experience in Panel Management YouGov accumulates years of longitudinal data on panels, it becomes ever more sophisticated in its ability to gain the most insight out of data and to understand the significance of trends as they develop.
  10. 10. Research Quality Accuracy The only way to demonstrate the accuracy of attitudinal research is to compare predictions with actual outcomes. This is why we have consistently published pre-election polls. We can use these experiences to fine-tune our methodology for representativeness. For quantitative research, YouGov generally delivers accurate data at greater speed. YouGov also uses online qualitative research tools to conduct live focus groups and consultation forums. Our data is of a higher quality and our cost base is lower than that required by the use of conventional market research techniques. This means that we can pass on these cost savings to our clients. Our unique methodology enables us to create representative samples through the Internet. It is a methodology of demonstrable superiority in terms of accuracy, frankness and depth of response – as well as speed and cost-effectiveness.
