Who We Are: The New York Chapter of the American Association for Public Opinion Research (NYAAPOR) Since 1979, we have been a group of members involved in commercial and academic research in the greater New York City area. We are a thriving intellectual community of people engaged in methods, applications, and findings from market research, public opinion research and data analytics. Comprised of people involved in both academic and commercial research, NYAAPOR offers members and the research community at large an opportunity to discuss and debate methodological, ethical, and substantive issues related to a broad range of research topics. A variety of programs are offered during the year – some are afternoon workshops on practical issues such as sampling or graphic interpretation of data, while others are evening panel presentations on timely and topical issues. Election years bring notable political and media pollsters as well as campaign managers for an inside look at American political trends.
