Public Issue S.A.

Founded in 2001 by Yiannis Mavris, Public Issue is today one of the leading opinion polling companies in Greece.

Public Issue became widely known when it established the use of telephone polling in Greece to estimate voting intentions, but also to make accurate forecasts, in parliamentary elections in 2004 and 2007.

The company has an advanced data collection system – the Public Issue Contact Center – with 24 workstations. 

It is a member of the European Society for Opinion & Marketing Research (ESOMAR) and the Association of Greek Market & Opinion Research Companies (SEDEA).



Public Issue provides a range of integrated services involving the design, implementation and analysis of public opinion and specific population surveys, either on a subscription basis or ad hoc.

The company has acquired a high degree of specialization in political and electoral research, media research, social research and consumer behavior research.



Public Issue’s research activities are complemented by its publications. The results of its most important surveys are published each year in a separate volume (Barometer 2006Barometer 2007).
