Learn how the data from the Gallup US Daily Tracking and World Polls can uniquely enrich your research. A variety of time series plots and cross-tabs from these two polls can be viewed via Stanford's subscription to Gallup Analytics.
The Gallup US Daily Tracking Poll, begun in 2008, and running until the end of 2016, is a nationally representative poll of about 7000 adults per week. Questions provide unique and detailed insights into Americans' opinions and perceptions of important political and economic issues, as well as the current events that affect the world, the U.S., and their lives. With almost 1900 variables and large sample sizes that accumulate over time, the US Daily Tracking Poll will allow you to slice and dice the microdata to fairly detailed breakdowns by demographic categories or geography.
The Gallup World Poll, begun in 2005, is an annual poll of more than 20000 variables from over 167 countries that represent 99% of the world's adult population. The World Poll tracks the opinions and perceptions of the adult population of these countries on the most important issues worldwide, such as safety, food access, governance, employment, and subjective well-being.
