Press releases of the Public Opinion Research Centre of the Institute of Sociology of the CAS

The Public Opinion Research Centre at the Institute of Sociology of the Czech Academy of Sciences conducts ten regular omnibus investigations annually. It acquaints the public with their results primarily by means of press reports (around 15 a month). These reports have been regularly made available in electronic form since 2002. Older reports (since 1946) are provided by the Czech Social Science Data Archive.

The main activity of the Public Opinion Research Center is "Our Society" research project, within which ten surveys a year are conducted. These involve public opinion surveys using a representative sample of the Czech population over 15 years of age, with a minimum of 1,000 respondents taking part as a rule. Thanks to the omnibus form of the survey, a broad range of topics can be covered, and the survey thus regularly includes political, economic and other general social topics. Both repeated queries - so that the development of monitored phenomena could be observed - and new queries responding to current events are used. The long-term and continuous nature of the public opinion research makes this science project unique in the context of the Czech Republic. The PORC regularly presents its work through press releases, and holds press conferences on topical themes several times a year.
