From July 26 to July 31, 2019, Leger conducted a web survey using computer-assisted web interviewing (CAWI) technology to explore Western Canadians’ views on Western Canada’s influence on federal priorities.
A total of 922 Western Canadians; located in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba; 18 years of age or older; who have the right to vote in Canada, randomly recruited from LegerWeb’s online panel were surveyed.
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 922 respondents would have a margin of error of ±3.23%, 19 times out of 20.
