(Journalist) Course on Opinion Polling

AAPOR, ESOMAR and WAPOR have together launched a free online learning module for journalists. This course helps anyone who is not a market researcher understand how polls are conducted, what to look for in methodology and why even the most legitimate of polls sometimes miss the mark.

This course is a fantastic introductory course into how opinion polling works for anyone interested in the subject. It explains how people are selected for research and how as a researcher you can make sure they are representative of the opinion of a whole nation. It further explains the advantages and disadvantages of certain interviewing methods (like face-to-face vs online vs telephone). It has a section on how to prevent bias in answers, by making sure questions are balanced, not leading etc.The course will help you learn not only how market research is done in this field, but also how to interpret research results and also getting a bit of an idea of the statistics behind.
