On this week’s episode of Poll Hub, FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver examined the data surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic with the goal of providing context to the number of cases being reported. Our Poll Hub team breaks down the analysis and explains why this research is so important.
And, the decennial census is upon us. We discuss challenges the COVID-19 pandemic presents to accurately and fairly counting the U.S. population.
And, don’t forget to check out our series of free, short online courses. It’s called The Marist Poll Academy.
About Poll Hub
Poll Hub goes behind the science to explain how polling works, what polls really show, and what the numbers really mean. Poll Hub is produced by the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, home of America’s leading independent college public opinion poll, The Marist Poll. Lee Miringoff (Director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion), Barbara Carvalho (Director of the Marist Poll), and Jay DeDapper (Director of Innovation at the Marist Poll) dig deep to give you a look at the inner workings of polls and what they tell us about our world, our country, and ourselves.
