Power for Democracy has sponsored the “2016 Legislative Council Election Rolling Survey”, which was designed and conducted independently by The Public Opinion Programme at The University of Hong Kong (POP). The goal of the survey was to gauge registered voters’ views on Legislative Council Election and to provide free data for civil society.
The integrated analysis released here combined 12 consecutive days of rolling survey data from 21 August to 1 September. More than 5,000 cases were collected and integrated for in-depth analysis to show public opinion in the final stage of the election campaign. It also included the survey data about strategic voters conducted from 29 to 31 August. Fieldwork operations and data analysis were conducted independently by the POP Team, without interference from any outside party. In other words, POP was given full autonomy to design and conduct the survey, and POP would take full responsibility for all the findings reported herewith.
