Home Letters Poll to find out peoples’ opinions on contemporary issues
The Turkeyn Research and Polling Institute (TRPI) plans to conduct an opinion poll later this month on matters pertaining to the coming election. TRPI was founded in 1990 by Professor Dr Baytoram Ramharack, a Guyanese born American trained political scientist who teaches in New York. The polling organisation conducted its first opinion poll in Guyana in 1991 and several annual surveys thereafter, all of which were published in the mass media.
TRPI was dormant for a while and has decided to revive its operations especially since there is a scarcity of public data for research purposes particularly on support (or lack thereof) of varied political figures and issues of national importance. With elections on the horizon, TRPI has decided to conduct opinion tracking polls to determine popular support for presidential contenders and parties and which political figure has the best shot at capturing the presidency. The poll will also find out peoples’ opinions on a host of contemporary issues.
TRPI is seeking interviewers to assist with querying respondents in the fields. The interviewers are needed to assist with the research surveys (interviewing respondents) that will be done primarily in person in face to face interactions. Interested individuals can write to [email protected]
Prior experience is not required as training will be provided. The surveys are simple and straight forward. Prospective applicants must be versed in English to read questions if required. The answers are ticked off and later computed and tabulated, and the findings will be released to the public.
