The Mitofsky 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 award recognizes those who have made powerful contributions to the field of public opinion or survey methodology through published scholarship or distinguished practice (presented at a conference or discussed in public media).
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 any connection of the nominee to the Roper Center’s public opinion data archives such as a contribution to the archives or use of the archives for research or other purposes.

Nominations of women and individuals from other underrepresented groups are especially encouraged.
