WORLD POLL

Scientifically measuring attitudes and behaviors worldwide
(divider)

Gallup conducts surveys in 160 countries and is committed to doing so for the entire century. The Gallup World Poll provides a scientific window into the thoughts and behaviors of 98% of the world's residents through nationally representative samples. It is the only global study of its kind in existence.

Global Survey Research Capabilities

Gallup collects data on hundreds of global and region-specific issues to allow leaders to monitor key measures worldwide and across countries. Additionally, Gallup works with governments, organizations, cities, and countries to conduct custom studies and indexes that delve more deeply into specific topics of interest.

Beyond Traditional Economics

Gallup research has clearly shown that a range of factors beyond classical economic measures affect our attitudes and behaviors. The World Poll -- created with input from renowned economists including Nobel Prize laureate Daniel Kahneman, Angus Deaton, Alan Krueger, Ed Diener, and John Helliwell -- provides leaders with better tools to examine and predict the future of economies, the performance of governments, and the momentum of the world's population overall.

The Gallup Macroeconomic Path includes global indexes leaders can use to track and impact the success of their societies.
These indexes include:

  • Law and Order
  • Food and Shelter
  • Institutions and Infrastructure
  • Good Jobs
  • Wellbeing
  • Brain Gain
