American Association for Public Opinion Research
The American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR), founded in 1947, is an organization of approximately 1900 survey research professionals from academia, non-profit organizations, polling firms, and government. The membership's professional qualifications are diverse, including research methodologists, statisticians, political scientists, sociologists, public health researchers, and other social scientists. The AAPOR publishes an academic journal called Public Opinion Quarterly. It holds an annual research conference and maintains a code of ethics and professional standards for survey research.
On August 1, 2014 the group issued a statement criticizing The New York Times and CBS News for releasing a nationwide poll conducted by YouGov that used an unproven methodology to obtain its results.
