A guide to the Gallup datasets that NYU Data Services provides.

Gallup Poll Social Series (GPSS)

The Gallup Poll Social Series (GPSS) dataset is a set of public opinion surveys designed to monitor U.S. adults’ views on numerous social, economic, and political topics. The topics are arranged thematically across 12 surveys and change each month. Gallup administers these surveys during the same month every year and includes the survey’s core trend questions in the same order each administration.

Gallup conducts one GPSS survey per month, with each devoted to a different topic, as follows:

  • January: Mood of the Nation
  • February: World Affairs
  • March: Environment
  • April: Economy and Finance
  • May: Values and Beliefs
  • June: Minority Rights and Relations (conducted periodically)
  • July: Consumption Habits
  • August: Work and Education
  • September: Governance
  • October: Crime
  • November: Health
  • December: Lifestyle (conducted periodically)
