The National Asian American Survey (NAAS) Pre-Election Survey, 2016, was an effort to poll the opinions and gauge the extent of political participation of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders prior to the 2016 national election. The survey instrument included questions about immigrant background, social identities, social attitudes, political and voting behavior, and policy attitudes.

The survey included sizable samples of Asian Americans in 9 Asian national origin groups (Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Vietnamese, Korean, Japanese, Hmong, Cambodian), as well as Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islanders, Whites, African Americans/Blacks, and Hispanics/Latinos.

4,787 Asian American adults in the United States were questioned during telephone interviews that lasted approximately 25 minutes in length. Survey interviews were conducted in 11 languages (English, Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean, Vietnamese, Tagalog, Japanese, Hindi, Hmong, Cambodian) - chosen according to the interviewee's preference.

The primary sampling strategy was to interview individuals drawn from a random selection of respondents in a listed sample stratified by race and national origin.
