Media Centre

Disclosure and transparency are central to ICM Unlimited’s public opinion polling ethos. Our work is frequently commissioned by, or quoted in the media, and we take very seriously every single design and reporting element of it. Poll observers should expect to have full sight of methodological approach, question and weighting information, and our thoughts on the main messages contained within the data.

In line with British Polling council protocols, ICM Unlimited will publish every poll onto this section of our website.
