70 years gauging the pulsew of democracy

Gallup International was formally founded in May 1947 with 11 pioneering research institutes and Dr. George H. Gallup as its first President.

95 percent of the world's market

Today Gallup International covers with its partners 95% of the world’s market and has research capabilities in more than 100 countries around the world.

The right to speak out vigorously on governmental and corporate policies is one of the most staunchly defended freedoms of the Western World.

The advent of modern public opinion polls, dealing as they do with important political, social and economic issues of the day help to provide an opportunity to let government officials, public and private institutions, and the public itself know where the people stand on these issues.

The usefulness of this mode of public expression is attested to by the fact that every important democracy in the world has now one or more competent public opinion research organization. “
