Welcome to the new website!

March 20, 2015
Welcome to the new Roper Center website! In addition to the new look and feel, the site offers a number of new features for users. Dataset Collections offers an overview of our holdings and highlights some of the unique dataset collections to be found in the archive. Data Provider pages offer information about the collection from each of our data providers, including the number of polls, years represented, recent acquisitions, co-sponsors, and background on the organization itself. Those interested in the history of polling can learn more about the people who built the field in Pioneers of Public Opinion Research. Our new Topics at a Glance pages include not just prepared iPOLL and dataset searches, but supplementary materials including issue briefs, featured datasets, and charts and graphics. Keep tabs on the prospects of 2016 nominees with one click, or review historical voting data from our U.S. Elections page. Studying Presidential Approval Ratings is easier than before with new responsive charts. Roper Center will be continuing to enhance and expand the materials and tools available on our site over the coming year. New features will be highlighted on our blog page, where you can also find information about new datasets and toplines, secondary analysis, upcoming conferences, membership information, and other Center news. Be sure to update your bookmarks!! And of course, you can always access iPOLL or search datasets from the links at the top of every page on the site. If you have any questions, contact us at
