The theme for AAPOR’s 2017 Annual Conference, Embracing Change and Diversity in Public Opinion and Social Science Research, signals AAPOR's willingness to welcome both the challenges and opportunities presented by a rapidly changing public opinion and research methodology landscape and an increasingly diverse population. The upcoming conference will feature presentations that highlight new approaches, perspectives, and voices to join perennially popular topics.

Several tracks and panels will be featured including:

  • A polling post‐mortem and related papers spawned by the extraordinary 2016 election.
  • Latest research on survey methods including non‐response, question wording, questionnaire design, interviewers and interviewing, and sampling.
  • Diversity: Public opinion and research on racial, ethnic, religious, gender and sexual orientation issues.
  • Growth and use of non‐probability samples and Big Data.
  • Evaluation of new methods and technologies for collecting and analyzing social science data.
  • Effects of modes and methods of data collection on response rates, data quality, and costs.
  • Research on survey methods, outcomes and findings in multicultural, multinational and multilingual contexts.
  • Public opinion in shaping policy and debate on pivotal topics like healthcare, immigration, income equality, marijuana and gun control.
  • Facing challenges of declining response rates, disappearing landlines, TCPA, among others.
  • Creating insights from data to drive the best decisions: latest trends and practices from market research and the private sector.

Public opinion and survey researchers are working in a time of unprecedented change, challenge, and opportunity. Our annual conference is the premier event for like‐minded researchers, practitioners, and consumers of social data to share and learn from one another. Join the conversation by attending the conference in May.
