Arizona Indicators Panel

The Arizona Indicators Panel is a statewide representative sample of Arizonans. Panel members have agreed to be surveyed online several times a year across many topic areas. This enables great depth and exploration of topics with the same sample group and solves some of the problems experienced in random sample telephone surveys.

Arizona Indicators is a project of Morrison Institute for Public Policy. It is a community partnership supported by major sponsors ASU and Arizona Community Foundation, and contributing sponsors Valley of the Sun United Way, The Arizona Republic, and Arizona Department of Commerce.
