Danish Currency photo (cc): David Ortmann flickr 2188585205In August 2000, Denmark held it’s first national Deliberative Poll. A random sample of 384 Danes discussed whether the nation should participate in the single currency of the Euro. The Danish incarnation of the Deliberative Poll was unique at the time in that participants were polled four times throughout the process. The poll showed increases in knowledge and opinion change. The process and the results produced extensive media coverage before the vote.
