What is Gallup Analytics?

Gallup Analytics provides access to nearly a century of U.S. public opinion data and a decade of international polling data.  The Gallup Poll Social Series, comprising public opinion surveys on social, economic, and political topics, is accessible to all users.  U.S. Tracker contains datasets at the country, state and city respondent levels and World Poll has international public opinion datasets.  Access to the datasets is restricted to GW students, faculty, and staff. 

A User Guide provides directions on searching the database.  (Skip to section on Site Homepage).
