AAPOR2010: Peter Miller & AAPOR's Transparency Initiative

Topics: AAPOR , AAPOR2010 , AAPOR Transparency Initiative , Disclosure , Peter Miller

Today at the AAPOR Conference in Chicago, I interviewed Peter V. Miller, Northwestern University professor and the organization's outgoing president just after he addressed the full conference on AAPOR's transparency initiative.

Miller made news today when he announced the organizations that pledged to support the initiative by routinely depositing methodological information to a public archive that AAPOR is creating (I subject I wrote about at more length earlier this week). According to Millter, the news media organizations and media pollsters that have pledged to support the initiative so far include: ABC News, the Associated Press, CBS News, Gallup, GfK, Knowledge Networks, the New York Times, the Pew Research Center, SurveyUSA and the Washington Post. Miller was careful to emphasize that "we are not cutting off the membership now, this is just the beginning." [Update: Peter Miller shared via email the full list of organizations that have committed, so far, to joining the transparency initiative, and it appears below, after the jump].

We are conducting interviews this week with participants at the annual conference of the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR). The following links take you to all the videos and occasional Twitter updates from me, Kristen Soltis and others at the conference.
