What you need to know about Referendum Polling with Professor Simon Jackman

On Saturday, October 14th, Australians head to the polls to decide the Voice to Parliament Referendum.

In this episode, we’re not looking at the referendum, but rather the polling around it. Plus, what makes referendum polling different to polling in a regular election.

Our guest is Professor Simon Jackman from the University of Sydney. Professor Jackman has three decades of experience researching, teaching, and communicating about political science and data science in the United States and Australia.

Until last year, Simon led the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney. Before that, he spent 20 years at Stanford University.  He is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the Society for Political Methodology.

Our host is Cynthia Huang, a PhD Candidate at Monash University in the Department of Econometrics and Business Statistics.
