Langer’s work has been recognized with two news Emmy awards; 10 Emmy nominations; the David R. Ogilvy Award for Excellence in Advertising Research; and the Policy Impact Award of the American Association for Public Opinion Research, for a seven-year series of surveys in Iraq and Afghanistan cited as “a stellar example of high-impact public opinion polling at its finest.” His polling for ABC News has received at A+ rating from Nate Silver’s fivethirtyeght.com, one of just six ongoing surveys out of more than 370 assessed – and the only media-sponsored poll – to win this grade.

Langer is a board member of the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research, a trustee of the National Council on Public Polls and former president of AAPOR’s New York Chapter. His firm is a charter member of AAPOR’s Transparency initiative.
