Survey results to be officially released next week
March 22, 2012, Washington, D.C. - The Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans (PAAIA) held a briefing on Thursday at the Department of State to present the findings of its 2012 follow-up nationwide scientific survey of Iranian Americans on their views over military action against Iran. The prescreening of the survey findings were made to staff from the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, Office of Iranian Affairs, and the Policy and Planning Office for the Secretary of State.
An integral component of better understanding our community and having its voice heard is the availability of on-going accurate statistical data about the Iranian American community. In October of 2011, PAAIA commissioned Zogby Research Services to conduct its third national public opinion survey of Iranian Americans. The survey explored attitudes and views of Iranian Americans on a variety of issues including U.S. –Iran relations and President Obama’s handling of relations with Iran.
The follow-up 2012 Survey, results of which will be released next week, explores attitudes and views of Iranian Americans towards a possible U.S. or Israeli military action against Iran’s nuclear sites or other facilities as well as their concerns on how such hostilities with Iran may impact their lives in America.
Coming next week: PAAIA’s 2012 Survey of Iranian Americans

PAAIA's surveys are conducted by Zogby Research Service (formally known as Zogby International), a pre-eminent polling firm, based on successful telephone interviews in English with representative sample of respondents. Zogby Research Service employs sampling strategies in which selection probabilities are proportional to population size within area codes and exchanges. The margin of error for the results of the 2008, 2009, and 2011surveys were +/- 5 percentage points, which is an acceptable margin of error for a survey of this type.
