AAPOR Convenes Task Force to Formally Examine Polling Performance During 2020 Presidential Election 

The American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR), the nation’s largest organization of survey researchers, is launching a special task force to examine the performance of public opinion polls during the 2020 presidential election. This effort builds on the work of the 2016 task force that showed the national polls performed well.

AAPOR Profile: Ineke Stoop
Stoop.jpgIneke Stoop is a fairly new member of AAPOR, but a long-standing part of the European survey community. Until her retirement in May 2019, she was Head of Methodology at the Netherlands Institute for Social Research/SCP and was the Deputy Director Methodological for the European Social Survey (ESS). She also was Chair of the European Statistical Advisory Committee (ESAC), and an advisory member of Eurostat. She taught classes and published works on survey design, nonresponse, and comparative surveys. And she is sharing that wealth of experience with AAPOR, as a part of the AAPOR/WAPOR Task Force on Quality of Comparative Surveys.
Focusing on student and professional researchers in the Western region of the United States, PAPOR held several in-person and virtual events in 2019. Monitor AAPOR-net for more information on our two premier in-person events of 2020 – the June mini-conference in the Bay Area (where we highlight presentations from the National AAPOR conference) and the PAPOR Annual Conference December 10th and 11th in San Francisco.
PANJAAPOR is celebrating another great year of events. Our annual spring event took place last May, hosted by Drexel University. Dr. Jana Hirsch (Drexel University School of Public Health) presented information on her research to measure gentrification in Philadelphia and to understand how residents think about and perceive neighborhood change and its effect on their health and well-being.
