Welcome to Mass Public Opinion Institute (MPOI)

The Mass Public Opinion Institute is a non-profit, non-governmental research organization established and registered on 13 January 1999 as a "Trust" in accordance with the laws of the Republic of Zimbabwe to undertake, publish, and discuss public opinion research. The Institute’s main objective is to gauge public opinion on topical issues of governance and public concern and make this known to policy makers and implementers and to the public itself. The Institute believes that public policy should be informed by public opinion


Hitherto, public policy has been elite or leadership driven. Public opinion has had no independent channel of expression, while the elite also has lacked independent sources of information about what the citizens feel on public policy and what that policy should be. The Institute seeks to provide this independent channel of communication between those in leadership positions and the citizens on public policy issues.
