Central European Opinion Research Group Foundation

The Central European Opinion Research Group (CEORG) is a newly established research foundation consisting of three major public opinion research institutes in the Czech Republic (Centrum pro výzkum verejného mínení, CVVM), Hungary (Társadalomkutatási Intézet, TÁRKI) and Poland (Centrum Badania Opinii Spolecznej, CBOS)

The aim of CEORG is to act as a clearing house for comparative surveys conducted by its member organisations and to unify public opinion research methodology and reporting standards in the three countries so that it can provide credible and comparative data concerning public opinion on important local as well as European social and political issues. Thanks to its broad network of interviewers (all three institutes are among the largest in their countries) and its members’ past experience, CEORG offers the capacity to generate a first, truly consistent, regular and reliable fundament for the analysis of changing political views, attitudes and consumer patterns in some of the most prominent Candidate Member States.

On the basis of its regular monthly omnibuses as well as special surveys, and in co-operation with ranking researchers, analysts and opinion leaders in Central European countries, CEORG aspires to become a ‘barometer’ on Central European public opinion.
