The 2008 Election: How Arab Americans Will Vote and Why

Zogby International conducted an omnibus telephone poll of Arab Americans nationwide between September 8th and September 13th, 2008.

The target sample is 501 interviews with approximately 46 questions asked. Samples are randomly drawn over national cds using Zogby International's list of Arab surnames in conjunction with a purchased surname list. Zogby International surveys employ sampling strategies in which selection probabilities are proportional to population size within area codes and exchanges. Up to six calls are made to reach a sampled phone number. Cooperation rates are calculated using one of AAPOR’s approved methodologies1 and are comparable to other professional public-opinion surveys conducted using similar sampling strategies.2 Weighting by country of origin, religion, born in US, age and gender is used to adjus t for non-response. The margin of error is +/- .5 percentage points. Margins of error are higher in sub- groups.
