HOW WE CONDUCT RESEARCH

We conduct online surveys every 4-6 months and combine them with interviews. Each new wave we survey previous respondents and invite new ones to participate. Currently, our sample does not represent the general population of Russians who have left the country, but we do our best to ensure its quality.

In each new wave of the survey, we try to reach out more communities of Russian emigrants, expanding the survey distribution networks. We distribute a survey link through dozens of channels and communities, both political and non-political. We also use a number of techniques and statistical tests to ensure the quality of the sample.

We survey Russians who:
1
Left Russia
Target Group
2
Left Russia, but have already returned
3
About to leave soon

Our respondents are all over the world
