AAPOR SurveyFest 2018


The American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR) is excited to announce our first-ever AAPOR SurveyFest! AAPOR is the leading professional organization of public opinion and survey research professionals in the U.S. with members from academia, media, government, the non-profit sector, and private industry.

SurveyFest is a free one-day conference aimed at introducing undergraduate and graduate students from diverse demographic and disciplinary backgrounds to careers, internships, and graduate training in the fields of public opinion and survey research. Survey research is one of the most widely used methodologies in traditional social science disciplines (e.g., political science, sociology, psychology, and economics) as well as in more applied social and health disciplines (e.g., public policy, public administration, social work, business, nursing, disability studies, and public health).

Professionals from the public sector, private sector and academia will participate in panel discussions about their careers and offer insight and advice to participants. Panels will also address internship opportunities and graduate education.

SurveyFest attendees will also receive a free one-year membership to AAPOR!
