The AAPOR was founded in 1947 by a group of dedicated public opinion research pioneers. It is a professional association of indiviudals, not organizations, who are engaged or interested in the methods and applications of public opinion and survey research.
In the main, AAPOR has occupied itself with professional matters: Public Opinion Quarterly, which became the official journal in 1948; professional standards; and above all, advancing research theory and methodology.
