The influence of poll data on public opinion

Date of publication: June 15, 1986


This contribution has three aims: 1. To determine the existing assumptions about possible negative influences of opinion polls. 2. To determine what can be said about these assumptions from the point of view of empirical social science. 3. To outline how other phenomena which have not been investigated yet might be dealt with in the future.
