Our research team has several projects related to our several polls of the South Dakota electorate and separate polls conducted on the SDSU campus.
Dr. Brittney Meyer, Dr. Filip Viskupic & Dr. David Wiltse have published "Pharmacists to Partner with Religious Leaders to Overcome Vaccination Hesitancy" 2021. Journal of the American Pharmacists Association. Forthcoming.
Dr. Filip Viskupic, Dr. David Wiltse & Dr. Abdallah Badahdah fielded a survey on the impact of COVID-19 on South Dakota families in August 2021.
Dr. Alper Kayaalp, Dr. David Wiltse & Dr. Filip Viskupic fielded a survey examining the impact of COVID-19 on work-life balance in South Dakota.
Dr. Filip Viskupic, Dr. David Wiltse & Dr. Brittney Meyer fielded a large survey experiment entitled "The Messenger Matters" which seeks to determine who the electorate is most receptive to when hearing public health messages concerning COVID-19 vaccination and post-vaccination mitigation measures.
Dr. David Wiltse & Dr. Filip Viskupic led the inaugural South Dakota Voter Survey. This is a comprehensive political survey of the South Dakota Electorate. We have included a battery of questions on the public's attitudes on COVID-19 and policies relating to the pandemic; not just for our own academic research, but to provide vital information to policy makers throughout the state. We are also developing a quantitative measure of rural-urban resentment, a whole host of attitudes that is coming to be seen as an important driver of partisan self-identification.
Dr. Evren Celik Wiltse and coauthors Michael Gonda, Camille Massmann, Kas Williams and Rebecca Bott-Knutson recently published a study of the impact of COVID-19 on students during the tumultuous Spring 2020 semester utilizing Dr. Celik Wiltse’s poll of SDSU students. https://www.jehc.eu/index.php/jehc/article/view/143
