Background

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 most of these Canadian Gallup polls until 2000. They were 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.

Although Gallup Canada, Inc. has been conducting surveys from 1945 to present, users should note that polls from earlier years do not contain as many questions or as much demographic data as do more recent polls. As well, the collection dating from 1945 is incomplete, especially in the earlier years. Even though Gallup Canada, Inc. still conducts these surveys, our collection unfortunately ends in 2000.

At this time, a search engine is not available at Carleton University for our Gallup polls. So, to search the Gallup collection, go to the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research, and search their Archives. Alternatively, you can search the individual polls listed below. Once you have found a Gallup Poll in which you are interested, write down the date and poll number, and contact us by phone (520-2600 ext. 2619) or email.
