Midwest Association for Public Opinion Research







Join Us




Who We Are?

We're a regional chapter of the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR). We're university and college faculty members, professional practitioners, governmental researchers and graduate students. Our shared frame of reference: the study of public opinion. We're a student-friendly organization, dedicated to helping develop the next generation of public opinion researchers and scholars. We list from coast to coast - Washington (state) to Washington (DC).


MAPOR's informal motto:

"Midwest" is a state of mind, not geography.

MAPOR Fellows

MAPOR Fellows are those MAPOR members who have made significant contributions to MAPOR through scholarship, service to the organization or other means. They’re selected by the MAPOR Executive Board. MAPOR Fellows also administer and judge the annual Student Paper Competition (click here to see a list of winners).
