‘What’s the latest?’

By

To the common question “What’s the latest?” I feel pleased that someone is interested, but also disappointed that he/she didn’t check the SWS website first.

Ratings

By

Many public officials will say publicly that they are not serving for the ratings, results of regular surveys measuring people’s sentiments about trust and performance. They will say that they will do what is right more than what is popular. Yes, most of them will say that.

Transition in P-Noy’s rating

By

From the time regular opinion polling began in 1986, the record for the longest presidential honeymoon goes to incumbent President Aquino. For 15 consecutive quarters, or just one quarter short of four years, P-Noy’s performance rating in the SWS surveys was no less than +42 (classified by SWS as “Good”; this was in May 2012), and went as high as +64 (“Very Good,” in November 2010).

The governance rating cycle

By

SWS had two new releases on ratings of governance this week, both based on the first-quarter 2014 Social Weather Survey, fielded last March 27-30. They are the last of the series from that particular survey. Soon, SWS will begin the next cycle of releases based on its new second-quarter survey, fielded in late June. The first report, as usual, will be on public satisfaction with the President.

Time for a General Social Survey

By

I pity the social science majors in college who are tasked “to do a survey” for their thesis research, on whatever topic. Sampling and interviewing are still far from social science. It is a waste of a student’s talent, time and money to single-handedly interview a decent sample of even a few hundred respondents, and then still have to analyze the data, within one or even two semesters of work. With so little data to analyze, whatever one finds will have no practical applicability.
