Federal Politics – January 22nd, 2020

January 23, 2020


Web survey using computer-assisted Web interviewing (CAWI) technology.

From January 17th to January 21st, 2020 among 1,552 Canadians, 18 years of age or older, who have the right to vote in Canada, randomly recruited from  LEO’s online panel.

Using data from the 2016 Census, results were weighted according to age, gender, mother tongue, region and level of education in order to ensure a representative sample of the population.

No margin of error can be associated with a non-probability sample (Web panel in this case). However for comparative purposes, a probability sample of 1,552 respondents would have a margin of error of ±2.49%, 19 times out of 20.
