What is the Lion Poll?


The Lion Poll is an omnibus web panel survey of 1,000 adult Pennsylvania conducted bianually in the spring and fall by Penn State Harrisburg's Center for Survey Research.


Because you only pay for the question(s) you submit, the Lion Poll is a cost-effective way to obtain high-quality statewide survey data that is representative of Pennsylvania's population by age/gender cohort and region. In addition to the data from your questions, your dataset will also include data from 23 demographic questions and a methodology report detailing our rigorous quality control procedures.

Past sponsors of the Lion Poll have used the results of the survey to track public policy issues; measure general attitudes, awareness, and knowledge of their organizations; and measure satisfaction with organizational services and performance.
