Understanding Our Call Dispositions and Rate Calculations Report

In an effort to provide the most transparency possible with our polling methods, SoonerPoll.com produces a Call Dispositions and Rate Calculations Report with each poll fielded and publicly released.  As of this writing, no other pollster in Oklahoma, partisan or non-partisan, publicly releases this much information about their polling methods.

This sample report below provides insight into how this particular poll was fielded, using call dispositions and rate calculations as defined by the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR) in the Standard Definitions:  Final Dispositions of Case Codes and Outcome Rates for Surveys.
