The BPC was established in 2004, twelve years after the perceived failure of opinion polls to come close to predicting the actual result of the 1992 United Kingdom general election. BPC members use a range of fieldwork methods (telephone, door-to-door, and internet) and statistical tools.

Additionally, NOP was a founding member, but are no longer members as of 2018, and are now known as GfK.
