Web Surveys 2020-06-26T12:13:21+00:00

The Institute carries out regular complex web surveys, using the AskingCanadians web panel. The completely anonymous raw data from these surveys is gradually being made available to the research community, with the appropriate documentation. At this time, the surveys fielded in 2016 and 2017 are available.

For more information on surveys or to obtain access to data for research purposes, it is possible to consult our Dataverse directory or to contact the Institute.
