Remington Research Group Methodology:
"IVR TechnologyRemington Research Group conducts automated telephone surveys using Interactive Voice Response (IVR).
In addition to cost and time advantages, IVR technology has enabled us to poll more accurately. Remington Research Group utilizes the registered voter database with additional phone matches to reach likely voters. Calling only registered or likely voters gives us a much more accurate sample of the target demographics for political polling.
SamplingOur samples are based on the registered voter database. We find this method to be the most accurate for political purposes than random digit dialing.
Voter registration databases contain information on each individual voter including gender, party affiliation, age, address, precinct, municipality, county, districts, and voter history. In our surveys we can then select voters based on any of the registration criteria.
Remington Research Group confirms all demography and likely voter status during the survey. We take all steps necessary to ensure we are sampling correct to get an accurate portrayal of the election.
For polling to be reliable, the demographics of the sample must match the demographics of the turnout. To incorporate accurate demographic breakdowns Remington Research Group employs demographic weighting in all surveys. Remington Research Group samples more voters than any other firm in the country. Our sample sizes are large enough to execute our weighting strategy where the results are not skewed."
