Given this parameter, we specifically aim to conduct and promote the following objectives at the Survey Research Center.

Enhancing the Academic Infrastructure of Survey Research:

Sustained Development of the Methodology of Survey Research:
We aim to contribute to a sustained development of the methodology of survey research by offering young scholars opportunities for hands-on training in research projects.

Making the Public More Literate of the Science of Survey Research:
We aim to improve the awareness of survey research among the general public and across primary and secondary educational institutions by disseminating ideas on survey research methodology and other related information.
