Survey results to be officially released next week
November 30, 2011, Washington, D.C. – The Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans (PAAIA) held a briefing on Tuesday at the Department of State to present the findings of its 2011 National Public Opinion Survey of Iranian Americans. The prescreening of the survey findings were made to staff from the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, Bureau of Intelligence and Research, and the Press Relations Office.
An integral component of better understanding our community and having its voice heard is the availability of on-going accurate statistical data about the Iranian American community. In striving to become an accurate source of information about the Iranian American community, PAAIA, through Zogby Research Services, has once again taken the lead in conducting its third nationwide scientific survey of Iranian Americans. The survey, results of which will be officially released next week, is aimed at gathering accurate demographic and attitudinal information about the Iranian American community. The survey allows us to meet PAAIA’s primary missions of community, image, and influence building.
This national poll, conducted by Zogby Research Services, explores the attitudes and views of Iranian Americans on the issues that are most important to them, such as the role Iranian American organizations could or should play with respect to these issues, links to Iran, U.S.-Iran relations, President Obama’s handling of relations with Iran as well as their views on the U.S. presidential election of 2012.
Coming next week: PAAIA’s 2011 Survey of Iranian American

PAAIA’s surveys are conducted by Zogby Research Service (formally known as Zogby International), a pre-eminent polling firm, based on successful telephone interviews in English with representative sample of respondents. Zogby Research Service employs sampling strategies in which selection probabilities are proportional to population size within area codes and exchanges. The margin of error for the results of the 2008 & 2009 surveys were +/- 5 percentage points, which is an acceptable margin of error for a survey of this type.
