Gallup Social and Economic Analysis
Gallup conducts surveys in more than 150 countries and is committed to doing so for the entire century. Employing gold-standard methodology, this initiative provides a scientific window into the thoughts and behaviors of 98% of the Earth's population through nationally representative samples. It is the only global study of its kind in existence.
Gallup typically surveys 1,000 individuals in each country, using a standard set of core questions that has been translated into the major languages of the respective country. In some regions, supplemental questions are asked in addition to core questions. Face-to-face interviews are approximately 1 hour, while telephone interviews are about 30 minutes. In many countries, the survey is conducted once per year, and fieldwork is generally completed in two to four weeks.
Gallup tracks key measures within the areas of Law and Order, Food and Shelter, Job Creation, Migration, Financial Well-being, Personal Health, Civic Engagement, and Wellbeing and documents their relationships with world development indicators such as GDP and Brain Gain. These indicators help leaders understand the broad context of their citizens’ attitudes and behaviors, and the relationship between leading behavioral economic indexes and lagging classical economic outcomes.
