Ever Wonder What the World Was Thinking?

By Merrill Stein

 

Gallup Analytics, one of Falvey’s newest polling resources, uses three entry points, Topic, Geography, and Keywords to analyze recurring daily and world polls for data sources in U.S. Dailies, World Poll, Gallup Poll Social Series, and Key Indicators.

Poll questions track a variety of economics, well-being, religion, environmental, and political data. Data can be compiled for table, chart, map, and export to MS Excel for the United States, individual states, Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) district levels, and the world. Trend, rank, and scatter plot depictions can also be visualized.

Gallup World Poll data covers more than 80 metrics from 160+ countries. Current Gallup Analytics subscription includes data coverage for the  21st century only. Subscription does not include historical Gallup Brain content. World Poll recurring questions may vary by year and country conditions.

Access to Gallup Analytics  is available via the Library’s Databases A-Z list and the Library catalog.  Select sample search results appear below.

By Merrill Stein

The Villanova community now has access to PolicyMap, an online tool for mapping and analyzing US national data on a wide variety of topics including education, income, employment, public health, crime, housing, and transit. Time series data is available from 2000 to the present.

Researchers can conduct demographic and socioeconomic analyses on a variety of geographic levels, from the national level to the neighborhood census block group as well as custom regions.

Some practical uses for PolicyMap include identifying vulnerable populations, examining social determinants of health, studying turnout rate in recent elections, viewing the number of intensive care unit beds, and evaluating Census response indicators by block groups.
