Polling criteria Edit

The Lovian Independent Polling agency maintains strict criteria to assure that the output of its questionnaires is correct. First of all, the questions and asked have to be understandable and their terminology must always be clearly defined. The LIP also handles a scale to rate the reliability based on several criteria like hidden biasses, the effect non-response and the compilation of the sample. A sample of less then eight voters is generally considered to be invalid. From eight to twelve counts as reliable and more than twelve is regarded as representative. In order to make the statistics even more accessible the number of voters and the voting period are always included in the final report, together with a small analysis.

History Edit

Occupy Movement Edit

In 2011 to 2012 the polling comany came back into the media as it became the officical "Pulse of the movement". The polling company was seeing financial troubles even though it was a not for profit company, but before had to lay off around 15 employees. LIP, though without political affiliation, stated it "symathized" with the movement, and did over 15 polls for the Occupy Lovia Movement. With the money it made, and in "sympathy" of the movement it hired back three of its employees it laid off.
