Reader polls on current issues are done by Island Social Trends at islandsocialtrends.ca as a way of engaging with readers and getting a basic idea of the way things are trending.

We realize polling can be tricky to produce truly meaningful and accurate results. At the bare minimum, who was questioned and when?

Factors influencing a person’s response include any number of these, and more: age, location, income level, employment sector, level of education, political leanings, etc.

Here are some of the year-end 2021 and new year results from recent Island Social Trends polls.
