AFIS maintains platform with variety of topics for conduction of public opinion polls based on internet communication. The advantage is the speed of interaction with respondents as well as the sustainable demographic structure since the panels have been developed according to pre-established selection criteria. The method is suitable for carrying out surveys among target groups and communities to which direct access is harder. Another advantage is that national borders are not an obstacle for selection of respondents. Using online panels AFIS could regularly review opinions and attitudes of Bulgarian citizens permanently living abroad, including current topics and events in Bulgaria.
Another advantage is relatively fast completion of big-scale samples, as well as the possibility of using graphical, audio and video items in the questionnaires.
AFIS regularly and methodically updates the database for the Agency's online panels and strictly monitors the punctual representativeness of the data collected.
