Gallup Analytics – public opinion poll data for the U.S. and the world

The Penn Libraries have started a new subscription to Gallup AnGallupWorldPoll_screenshotalytics, the interactive web tool for analyzing and visualizing Gallup public opinion data.

Gallup Analytics provides tables and charts for three Gallup poll series:

  • Gallup World Poll, conducted annually since 2005 in 160+ countries.
  • Gallup U.S. Dailies, conducted daily since 2008.
  • Gallup Poll Social Series, conducted monthly with rotating thematic modules, since 2008 across the U.S.

Tables and charts may be filtered by geography — U.S. Dailies by state or MSA, World Poll by country, by demographic characteristics (e.g., gender, age, education), and by time period. Users may download chart image files and table spreadsheet files.

Our Gallup Analytics subscription provides microdata files that contain cumulative individual-response questionnaire data for the World Poll, U.S. Dailies, and Gallup Poll Social Series polls. At this time, the Penn Libraries have not received our first installment of microdata datasets.

Gallup Brain, the question database for Gallup Poll Social Series questions, 1936-present, is included in our Gallup Analytics subscription. The database is comparable to the Roper Center for Public Opinion’s iPOLL question database. iPOLL includes questions from Gallup polls, 2015 and earlier, alongside questions from many other polling organization’s surveys.

We are excited by this addition of Gallup Analytics to our collection of social survey and public opinion resources, and we hope you will be, too!
