GW faculty and graduate students are invited to submit proposals for questions to be included in the GW Politics Poll. Proposed questions must be related to politics, policy or public affairs.
In 2018, we will administer a four-wave panel focused on the midterm elections. Researchers must provide the proposed questions as well as a short description of the intended research or question of interest.
Individual researchers may request no more than 8 questions. Priority will be given to proposals related to the election.
The survey will be administered online through YouGov. The survey contains standard demographic items including age, gender, race, income, marital status, state, party identification, ideology, religion and interest in politics. You can see examples of the types of questions that can be used in this YouGov demo poll.
The poll can accommodate survey experiments or the administration of experimental treatments. Any proposal involving an experiment must include the treatments and a description of the design. Experimental proposals must count any treatments toward the question limit. Researchers should have a CITI training on file with GW’s Office of Human Research.
Proposals will be reviewed by the faculty committee administering the poll.
