Polls

Since 1998, we have carried out polling and survey research programs in some of the world’s most challenging environments – from former Communist bloc countries following the fall of the Soviet Union to Indonesia following the fall of the Suharto regime, from Iraq following the fall of Saddam Hussein to Afghanistan following the fall of the Taliban in 2001. From Zimbabwe to Cuba, from Mongolia to Central Europe, we have conducted more than 635 polls and surveyed more than 1.24 million people in 63 countries.
