Piast Institute Launches 2020 Polish Americans Study
November 20, 2020 Piast Institute - A National Institute for Polish and Polish American Affairs
A new survey from the Piast Institute hopes to present the latest face of Polonia and its social attitudes.
The Piast Institute along with Dr. Dominik Stecuła of Colorado State University has launched the 2020 Polish American Survey. The Piast Institute is a nationally recognized think tank focused on Polish and Polish American affairs and is one of two Census Information Centers (CIC) in Michigan.
This survey is the second edition of the Polish Americans Today Survey, which collects the demographic, social, economic and political information and attitudes of Polish-Americans. Under the direction of the late Dr. Thaddeus Radzilowski, President Emeritus, and Dominik Stecuła, the first batch of results was published in 2010, and is available free of charge on the Piast Institute’s website (www.piastinstitute.org).
This new survey by the Piast Institute will provide updated information about Polonia. It will lead to the release of an updated volume, which will be relevant to countless researchers, scholars, community organizations, journalists, businesses,and anybody else interested in Americans of Polish descent.
“Our goal is to understand the connection that people have to Poland and to the Polish American community, the importance of different aspects of their complex identities, the sense of belonging they feel towards Polonia institutions, as well as their engagement with them and Polish American businesses.” said Dr. Dominik Stecuła. No data of this sort currently exists, with the exception of the previous surveys conducted by the Institute.
This survey, available in English, can be accessed at the following link:
It is completely anonymous and participants can skip any question they do not want to answer. The information you give will be kept confidential and will not be linked to you in any way. The survey takes about 30 minutes to complete, which is due to its comprehensive nature. We hope that all people who identify with their Polish roots will consider filling it out to help Polonia learn more about itself. If you have any questions, please contact the Piast Institute at: email@example.com or call 313.733.4535. You can also send an email regarding questions on the survey to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for serving the Polish American community and voluntarily participating in this important survey by the Piast Institute.
