Survey Methodology


This survey was fielded on October 29-31, 2010 as a means to measure attitudes towards candidates and races in the 2010 Alaska General Election among likely voters (defined as having voted in at least two of the last four local or statewide elections).  502 likely Alaskan voters were interviewed for each of the four surveys. The margin of error for the data collected is +/- 4.4 % for a 502 response survey for the data analyzed in its entirety with a 95% confidence level; meaning that we can be 95% sure that if every resident of the State of Alaska with working telephone numbers who have at least one member who has voted in at least two of the last four local or state elections was actually surveyed, the results would vary by no more than 4.4% in either direction.  
The survey sample used was a computer generated random list derived from a database of all households within the State of Alaska with working telephone numbers who have at least one member who has voted in at least two of the last four local or state elections. The sample frame was designed to accurately reflect the actual population percentages.
Respondents were screened to confirm they were over 18 and each household was attempted at least four times over a period of several days to account for non-response bias. Data was analyzed utilizing SPSS Quancept Software.  Interviews were conducted by trained staff with on-site supervision utilizing state of the art computer assisted telephone interviewing (CATI).  Random interviews were monitored to assure quality control measures were followed.  Dialing results were analyzed daily to assure statistically accurate distribution of call disposition in order to account for “non-response” variables.
For purposes of disclosure, this survey was paid for in full by the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee.
