    How much do you know about public opinion polling?

    A democracy is supposed to reflect the will of the people, but how can we know what the people want? One very important way is through public opinion polling, which uses surveys of relatively small samples of people to represent the much larger population they are drawn from.

    Test your knowledge of public opinion polling by taking our 10-question quiz. The questions in this quiz come from our email mini-course that explores how surveys are used to study public opinion in five short lessons delivered to your inbox. If you haven’t yet taken the course, you can sign up here.
