YouGov was founded in the UK in 2000, and is considered the pioneer of online polling and market research.

During the most recent US election cycle YouGov successfully predicted the outcome of the Presidential race as well as a number of Senatorial races, and successfully predicts election results around Europe. YouGov is not only extremely accurate with its predictive forecasts, but is also the only top performing research firm that utilizes online polling exclusively to predict election results.

YouGov has offices in the US, UK, Europe and the Middle East.

YouGov Results in 2010 US Elections

YouGov's general population samples are selected from its panel to match the distribution of demographics and other characteristics in the adult U.S. population: age, race, gender, education, employment, income, marital status, number of children (from the 2010 American Community Survey), voter registration, time and location of internet access (from the Current Population November 2010 and October 2009 supplements), interest in politics, religion, and church attendance (from the Pew Religious Landscape Survey of 2008).

Stratified subsamples (on four demographics) are selected from YouGov's opt-in panel and invited to participate in surveys. Samples are weighted by propensity score deciles estimated from the remaining variables using a case-control logistic regression.

The information our users provide is confidential. We do not sell or disclose this personal information to anyone at any time although we may report the information in aggregate form (e.g., "65 percent of those aged 65+ reported a high level of interest in the presidential debate").
