What is in the Gallup Analytics Dataset?

Gallup Analytics provides access to both aggregate and respondent-level data. Aggregate data is available for economic, social, and well-being indicators from countries that are home to more than 98% of the world's population. Respondent-level data from longstanding surveys such as the Gallup Covid-19 Survey, Gallup Poll Social Series Surveys, Race Relations Survey, Confidence in Institutions Survey, and Honesty and Ethics in Professions Survey are also available.  Cornell researchers have used this data to analyze presidential response to public opinion and how it varies depending on the state of the economy and project the 2020 Electoral College winner in the Presidential election of that year, among others. See the Cornell-Authored articles and dissertations below for additional examples of Cornell researchers who have used this data in preparing their publications.
