An annual award of The Roper Center
The Mitofsky award honors important work on public opinion and/or survey methodology that has been accomplished, published, or presented at a professional conference. Nominees can include recent work or past work that continues to have a significant impact on our understanding of public opinion. Nominations can be made for a specific project, innovation, conference paper, article or book, or for a larger body of work by a researcher or practitioner. Special consideration will be given to work that is based on data obtained directly from the Roper archive. The 2013 award carries a cash prize of $1,000 and the winner will be publicly announced in the fall.
The award honors the life and work of the late Warren J. Mitofsky, an innovator in survey research and longtime chair of the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research board of directors. The past winners include Senior Fellow ar NORC Norm Bradburn, media pollster Kathleen Frankovic, General Social Survey originator, James Davis, sociologist Robert Wuthnow, health policy authority Robert Blendon, and political scientist John Mueller.
Anyone can make a nomination (including self-nominations) by submitting a statement that includes the full citation of the work(s), a brief description of the work’s significance and impact, and (if appropriate) its use of the Roper Center’s public opinion data archives.
For full consideration, nominations must be received by April 1, 2013.
Please send nominations electronically to Chairwoman of the Mitofsky Award: Susan Pinkus, email@example.com.
The Center has established a fund in Warren's name to support the Roper Center and sponsor an annual award for outstanding work utilizing the Center’s archival holdings. Norman Bradburn, the 2012 Award recipient, was honored at the awards dinner held November 15, 2012 in Washington DC.
