The New More Data, More Global, More Mobile

Dear readers,

Our goal at to is to tell you everything we know about the world based on what the world’s 7 billion citizens are telling us. We do this through articles, reports, videos, and data interactives.

The new is going to continue providing you with the same trusted data-driven news you are used to, but it now has even more data from even more countries and is easily accessible on any device. Oh, and it got a phenomenal face lift. We revamped the design of the site to make it easier for you to read, scan, and navigate.

Data is at the heart of what we do. Gallup surveys 1,000 Americans every day and 1,000 citizens in more than 150 countries around the world every year. And, starting in 2012, Gallup will survey 1,000 people every quarter in the 26 nations that comprise nearly 75% of the world’s population.

Gallup Daily tracking data from the United States is still available right on the homepage. Additionally, weekly, monthly, and quarterly averages for our key political, economic, and wellbeing measures are easily accessible on the Politics, Economy, and Wellbeing news pages.

We are also providing more data to our growing global audience on the World news page. There you can now find annual data from more than 150 countries and compare countries on key metrics, like unemployment, suffering, food insecurity, and confidence in the national government.

Looking ahead, when our first quarterly tracking results come in this year, we will be making them available on the homepage. So keep your eyes out for that in the future.

We also wanted to make our site and our data easily accessible on any device. The homepage and all the key pages of the site were rebuilt using responsive design. This means that whether you are on your desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone you can easily browse all of the articles and data we have available.

All of the changes we made are to help our audience -- world leaders, journalists, researchers, and business executives, among others -- more easily consume data and analyses about what global citizens want and need.

At we seek to help leaders govern, journalists cover news, and researchers make life-altering breakthroughs. We are aiming for nothing short of changing the world. Our new site takes us even closer to that goal, and we hope it will help you to do the same.

Thank you for your readership,
Lymari Morales, Managing Editor
Elizabeth Mendes, Deputy Managing Editor

Take a tour of the new site now.

Certainly, my opinion is not of a great value since I don't subscribe to any of the paid services... but it's a pity that excellent dashboard on top of the previous version's front page got transformed into a bleak (and much less graphic and informative) shadow of itself on the right side of the page.

Your opinion certainly counts and all of our data and analyses are free. We moved the Daily tracking to the right because we will soon have metrics from 26 countries and it will be much easier to display in this format. We hope you grow accustomed to the new layout and enjoy the increasing data we will have available. You can still click on any metric for the full trend.
