    About CivicScience Polls On BuzzFeed

    This article describes how CivicScience polls work on BuzzFeed and how we use the polling data.

    BuzzFeed Research

    HOW IT WORKS:

    • Answer the poll questions then see the real-time results of how U.S. BuzzFeed users or Americans nationwide answered the polling questions.
    • Then, keep answering as many questions as you like.
    • You can always come back to answer more & new polling questions.
    • People who vote in our polls are anonymous. We may ask demographic questions but no personally identifiable information is stored.

    ABOUT CIVICSCIENCE:

    • CivicScience is an independent third-party market research company.
    • CivicScience provides the technology which powers these polls.


    HOW WE USE THE POLLING DATA:

    • Polling data is used by BuzzFeed & CivicScience for research purposes only.
    • BuzzFeed uses polls to learn what’s important to our audience.
    • Real-time results displayed with the poll questions reflect the responses of everyone who has taken the poll but are not based on representative samples.
    • However, we also create statistically valid results by using profile responses to weight results based on demographic data and other mathematical models.
