Methodology for May 25 – 26, 2023 Survey 

1,232 Alberta residents were surveyed between May 25 – May 26, 2023. Counsel Public Affairs uses the Lucid Exchange Platform as the sample provider, which blends a variety of partner panels. If the survey was a probability-based random sample of the same size, it would be considered accurate +/- 3% nineteen times out of twenty. Results are weighted for age, gender, education, and region according to the most recent census.The survey was self-commissioned and paid for by Counsel Public Affairs.
