Public Opinion Researchers

Employment Prospects


Approximately 9,930 survey researchers are employed in the United States, including those who work in public opinion polling. Most public opinion researchers are employed by private companies, such as public and private research firms and advertising agencies. They also work for government agencies and for various colleges and universities, often in research and teaching capacities. As is usually the case, those with the most experience and education should find the greatest number of job opportunities. Gaining experience in a specific area (such as food products) can give prospective researchers an edge.
