METHODOLOGY

A national random telephone survey (terrestrial and cellular sample using live agents) of 1,200 Canadians is being conducted by Nanos Research throughout the campaign over a three-day period. Each evening, a new group of 400 eligible voters is questioned. Daily tracking numbers are based on a three-day rolling sample of 1,200 interviews. To update the tracking, a new maintenance day is added and the oldest day is deleted. The margin of error for a survey of 1,200 respondents is ± 2.8 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

The sample of respondents is stratified geographically and by sex. Data may be age-weighted based on data from the 2016 Canadian Census administered by Statistics Canada. Reported percentages may not add to 100 due to rounding.
