ABOUT THESE OPINION POLLS
Welcome to the Mansfield Asian Opinion Poll Database (AOPD), a reference for researchers and others to help monitor key public opinion trends in Northeast Asia. Since launching the AOPD in 2006, the Mansfield Foundation has collected and translated hundreds of top-of-the line opinion polls on key policy-related issues from major media organizations and other agencies in Japan, South Korea, and China. Most of these polls were previously not available in English or on a central site on the Internet.
Although the content of polls may vary, the database focuses on issues of salient importance to policy making and regional diplomacy, such as:
The Foundation regularly updates and archives the polling data on our website. Polls are organized by year and by topic. In addition, we post supplemental commentary and analysis of the polls by experts in the Asia policy field.
We are honored that the following agencies and news organizations signed on as charter partners of the project when it was launched: The Cabinet Office of Japan (Japan); the Nikkei Shimbun (Japan); the Asahi Shimbun (Japan); Yomiuri Shimbun (Japan); Mainichi Shimbun (Japan); East Asia Institute (South Korea); the Dong-A Ilbo (South Korea); the Monthly Joong-Ang Magazine (South Korea); and the Horizon Research Consultancy Group (China). We look forward to expanding our partnerships with media organizations to increase our set of surveys from the region.
The U.S.-Japan Foundation has provided generous grant support for this project. In addition, the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership provided a generous grant to help launch this project.
