The PPIC Statewide Survey provides a voice for the public and likely voters—informing policymakers, encouraging discussion, and raising awareness on critical issues of the day.
California’s decision makers—including voters at the ballot box—take action on the issues that matter most to our state’s residents.
The PPIC Statewide Survey delivers nonpartisan, objective, advocacy-free information on the perceptions, opinions, and public policy preferences of California residents. Our core audiences are policymakers, the media, and other engaged Californians. Inaugurated in 1998, the PPIC Statewide Survey has become widely known as a trusted source of public opinion in California. Surveys are conducted regularly throughout the year. PPIC relies on a rigorous survey methodology and is a charter member of the American Association for Public Opinion Research Transparency Initiative.
Key survey areas include:
Our advisory committee
The PPIC Statewide Survey invites input, comments, and suggestions from its advisory committee, a diverse group of policy and public opinion experts. Survey methods, questions, and content are ultimately determined solely by PPIC’s survey team.
The survey is supported by generous grants from a large and diverse number of California foundations, including those with a particular interest in education, the environment, and the political landscape. To learn more about giving, please visit our Support PPIC pages.
