The Queue's Big Five of the First 100

Unbelievably, this post marks the 100th entry of The Queue. The goal of this blog is to help you better understand our mission at as a unique source of data-driven news, both in terms of what we report and how we report it. I also try to point you toward Gallup findings relevant to the news of the moment and to give you a heads up on what's coming up.

Since I'm sure I'm the only one -- other than my fantastic editor Jessica Stutzman -- who has read all of the posts, here are five good ones that sum up the collective mission of the site and the blog.

Gallup.Com Top 5 Basics: The key facts you need to know about how our news works.

Much More Than "A Gallup Poll": The 411 on Gallup Daily tracking and how it differs from traditional Gallup polls.

Widening the Measurement Lens: How our economic and wellbeing data paint a more comprehensive picture of what's happening in our world.

A Better Read on Economic Confidence: Why our economic data is more timely and accurate than other survey-based indicators.

Need for Research Based Solutions Clear . . . : How data like ours can help solve the top problems facing leaders and societies now.

By reading these posts, it should be clear that our news is about much more than reporting poll results for quick consumption. Rather, we are scientifically measuring everything that matters to inform our leaders and to help them craft better solutions.

Thanks to the more than 7 million of you who have visited this year, putting us in the 94th percentile of all news sites as measured by Meltwater. If you like what you see and find our information useful, please tell a friend. And as always, we welcome your feedback and ideas at
