As the first and only polling center in Yemen, YPC prides itself on providing the highest quality in social science research. Furthermore, YPC is the 2010 recipient of the Best Partner in the Middle East and North Africa award from Gallup Organisation. YPC designs and performs opinion polls, surveys, and employs other methods in studies, which serve the research needs of national and international institutions, non-profit organizations, corporations, government agencies, and professional associations.
Yemen Polling Center conducts interviews using Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI). YPC developed special software, which allows the interviewer to record responses with a computer. With this method, unlike with Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI), the interview takes place face to face instead of over the telephone. CAPI technology is the preferred method for the data collection of long and complex questionnaires.
