What Did MPSA Attendees Ask on Verasight’s Free Nationally Representative Survey?
Verasight fields free omnibus surveys with questions written by conference attendees after academic and market research conferences.

At each conference that Verasight attends, we encourage all attendees who visit our booth to submit a free question to our next nationally representative survey. Shortly after each conference, we field this survey with our verified community of respondents. We then send everyone who submits a question the raw data, survey weights, codebook, detailed methodology report, and dynamic HTML report with toplines and crosstabs. 

We do this for two reasons: 

  1. To allow researchers access to high quality, free data. Our business was built by researchers, for researchers and we love giving back to the research community. To further support researchers, we archive all non-proprietary data with the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research. Check out our data here!
  2. We want researchers to be able to “try before they buy” and experience our high quality data and deliverables. Most recently, we sent out this report to attendees from the Midwest Political Science Association conference who submitted a free question at our booth.  

It is always exciting to see the insightful questions submitted from students, postdocs, faculty, and private sector attendees. Here are just a few of the exciting findings from questions submitted by MPSA 2023 attendees: 

Trade-off between inflation and unemployment
Likelihood to vote for a congressional candidate after a racist remark
housing scarcity in the same area by income
