The research of the Bálványos Institute on Internet usage habits and online public participation among Hungarians in Transylvania was conducted between December 2020 and March 2021 on a sample of 1,839 ethnic Hungarians, representative for Transylvanian Hungarians. The data was collected in cooperation with the network of interviewers of TT Research & Communication in Cluj. The researchers involved in the survey are Tibor Toró (Sapientia University lecturer, research director of the Bálványos Institute), Gyöngyvér Tőkés (Sapientia University lecturer) and Szilvia Varga (PhD student, Bálványos Institute researcher)
