Public Opinion and Social Attitudes Data: Home

This guide will help you find public opinion and social attitudes data, including public opinion polls.

What are polls?


Only a fraction of polls are published and an even smaller fraction are easily attainable.  For example, when you see in the paper "according to a Gallup Poll published last week" it is not guaranteed that you will be able to find the poll in one of our services.  Also, many marketing polls/surveys are prohibitively expensive and therefore in effect not available.
