Welcome to the IPOL, the Iowa Policy and Opinion Lab
The Iowa Policy and Opinion Lab (IPOL) is a collaborative research group led by Professors Fred Boehmke in Political Science and Kajsa Dalrymple in Journalism and Mass Communication. Student research affiliates in IPOL collaborate to study policymaking and public opinion in Iowa. This includes examining policy choices in the legislative, executive, and judicial branches and collecting data on public opinion among Iowans. The data will then be used to answer a variety of research questions.
