modus operandi

A national random telephone survey (land and cell-line sampling using live agents) of 1,200 Canadians is conducted by Nanos Research throughout the campaign over a three-day period. Each evening a new group of 400 eligible voters is interviewed. The daily tracking figures are based on a three-day rolling sample consisting of 1,200 interviews. To update the tracking, a new day of interview is added and the oldest day is removed. The margin of error for the survey of 1,200 respondents is ±2.8 percentage points, which is 19 times out of 20.

The respondent sample is stratified both geographically and by gender. Data can be weighted by age according to the 2016 Canadian Census data administered by Statistics Canada. Reported percentages may not add up to 100 due to rounding.
