The Canadian Institute of Public Opinion (CIPO) has been conducting public opinion surveys for Gallup Canada, Inc. since May 1945 and the Carleton University Data Centre has these Canadian Gallup polls. They are conducted periodically (usually once per month) through telephone interviews (originally through face-to-face interviews) of a modified probability sample of adult Canadians.
The Canadian Gallup Polls are omnibus polls, containing questions of a political, social and economic nature, with the occasional question(s) on subjects of current interest. Each poll contains various questions on such topics, as well as questions on political affiliation and demographics which are standard from poll to poll.
The MO archive contains two areas: material collected by investigators and material submitted by volunteers. All data were summarized in file reports. Topics include abortion, old age, crime, eating habits, shopping, fashion, dance, popular music, sex, sport, reading, ethnic minorities, and the decline of Empire.
