Hong Kong Public Opinion Research Institute

Hong Kong Public Opinion Research Institute (HKPORI) began to operate officially and independently in July 2019, when it spun off from The University of Hong Kong. Its predecessor was the Public Opinion Programme at The University of Hong Kong (HKUPOP), which was established in June 1991. It emphasizes professional neutrality and actively promotes data sharing and freedom of information.

Since its establishment, the research team has been providing quality research services to a wide range of collaborators, including academics in Hong Kong, Mainland China and overseas, government departments, public organizations, non-government organizations, professional bodies, political groups, leading commercial firms, small-medium enterprises as well as local and overseas media organizations. In addition to commissioned projects, it has self-funded a pool of almost 200 tracking questions which are repeated periodically. These questions relate to a spectrum of social issues in Hong Kong, and many have been asked for over 30 years.
