The Authoritarian Bias: Measuring Public Opinion in Russia

Public opinion survey data from countries under authoritarian regimes are often treated as reliable, but how do they compare to survey data from democracies? How can social scientists detect the effects of propaganda and other forces on respondents in authoritarian countries? Kirill Rogov discussed the challenges of working with poll data under these conditions.

This event is co-sponsored by The Center on Global Interests.
