With this in mind, in the late 1980s, I began working with all known, active Canadian UFO researchers and investigators in the collection of UFO sighting data, producing an annual national survey of UFO sightings.
The main page for these annual surveys is here. Data, tables and the text reports are available thanks to the hard work of UFOROM associate Geoff Dittman.
Finally, I have added this link to an experimental survey we attempted in 1997. Since Roper and Gallup charge such astronomical fees for their services, I wondered if we could get volunteers in UFO groups across Canada to use a standard series of questions about belief in UFOs to poll people in their own cities or towns and then tabulate the data ourselves. The theory was that 20 people could do 50 respondents each and we could get a sample of 1000, in the ballpark for a good survey. (Or 10 people each doing 100 respondents.) Unfortunately, despite an enthusiastic endorsement by the entire Canadian ufological community, and great assent to help out and do the surveying, only one group - UFO*BC - actually participated in the survey with UFOROM, and we only got a fraction of the needed respondents for a scientific survey. Still, it was an interesting experience and we gained some good test data.
