SurveyUSA has published scholarly analysis of the performance of the nation’s pollsters.
  • Independent validation: SurveyUSA’s methodology has been validated continuously since 1992. In 1999, the research company NPD, of Roslyn, NY, undertook a parallel study in which 90,000 interviews were completed, to compare U.S. mail to traditional telephone to professionally voiced polls. The White Paper that was prepared by NPD is available for your inspection. Request the White Paper.
