Gallup Analytics Microdata

The University Libraries’ license with Gallup requires us to manage access to the microdata (individual response-level data). These data are to be used with statistical software, such as SPSS or Stata. Use Gallup Analytics summary data to generate tables and comparisons based on locations (country, state, etc.).

To start the process of requesting data, e-mail datahelp@gmu.edu. Describe the data set, topic(s), time period, and format (Stata or SPSS) you need. Once we receive your request, we will work with you to create a data extract based on your research question. If you’re not sure which data to use (summary, microdata) or have questions e-mail us for help.

Gallup Analytics Usage Guidelines
George Mason University users may download, use, and manipulate the data. They may create reports and publish externally, redistribute, and manipulate such reports, so long as such externally distributed reports do not contain only Gallup data and so long as Gallup data are not included in a report in a quantity or specificity that could reasonably be deemed to be a substitute for acquiring the data from Gallup. Reports must include attribution when Gallup data are included without modification or are used as a direct source of analysis.
