Public Opinion

IPOLL World's largest public opinion databank.   Registration is required but is free for IPOLL. The IPOLL portion codes studies to the variable level.  IPOLL does not include holdings outside the USA. The database is a full-text retrieval system updated daily and organized at the question-level, providing tools to sift through nearly a half million questions asked on national public opinion surveys since 1935.  International holdings are kept separately and are not coded at the variable level.
