About the Collection


The Center boasts the oldest and most comprehensive collection of public opinion survey datasets in the world. The focus of the collection is naturally on surveys from the United States, although many surveys from Europe, Latin America and Asia have been acquired, some dating back to the 1940s and 1950s.
